An Attitude Problem!

So, we are ending the 3rd grade on Friday and it seems like every week during this past school year Shelby has been written up by her teacher. It ranged from playing with her hair to talking during a test. Lately it seems like Shelby cannot breathe without being written up. I think it has to do with a little attitude issue we are having. Some people call it Talking Back, I call it Debating.

Here is an example.

Me: Shelby get up and get in the shower.
Shelby: I AM GETTING in the shower.
Me: Shelby, don’t talk back.
Shelby: I am not talking back.
Me: You just did it again.
Shelby: No, I didn’t.
Me: Just hush your mouth Shelby.
Shelby: But I am not acting bad.

This is a daily, some times an hourly occurrence right now. My daughter always has to have the last word. I think this is why she did not get along with her teacher this year.

Therefore, this summer I am going to break my child of debating with me. I just have to find the right method for her. I don’t think spanking her at this age will do the trick. I have attempted to read Have a New Kid by Friday, but I rarely make it through Monday. It is a good book and I need to buckle down and finish it. Kevin Leman has strategies that really seem like they could work.

My friend Holly and I used to call this attitude single child syndrome. I really need to get this syndrome under control!

Do you have any suggestions?

For more information on Kevin’s book watch this interview he did. He shares some of his strategies. Watch it here.
