Filed under: MY DAUGHTER,PERSONAL — by noracassandra @ 2:21 pm

My daughter is 7 years old. She’s been the perfect girl till some months ago, for some reason she’s been trying to act out. She’s been trying to answer back rudely to her father. Lies to her teacher and not doing her school works.

I’ve been so stressed with this. She was the second best in her class till Christmas time. She was going to ballet classes, and Finnish lessons.

We decided to stop her from her ballet, and Finnish school thinking she might get better at school. That didn’t work! So we now ground her 7 days for every time she’s being bad at school or does something deserves to be punished for. It seems that it’s working, but slowly.

I’ll be posting about how it’s going and if it’s working. The thing is I know it’s the few new friends she made at her new school. And she’s saying she’s not playing with them anymore, but I’ll just have to wait and see.



  1. Damn, this is very tough. My hat goes off to you and your husband. In Kuwait and in most cases you have to see who her friends are because they have the most affect and at 7 they can really be affected! I really hope this works out somehow and it isn’t too tough on you.

    Being strict worked on me and I was bouncing off the walls, they would really put the pressure on me! But don’t let her cute demeanor or innocent look break you.. it didn’t break my parents so it worked out for the better! I hope things get better! Keep us posted! 🙂

  3. I can not think of a better way to punish her but you see m to forget the other part of the problem. Understand a pre-teenager. You must sit and have a chat with here when neither of you is upset and discuss her needs. I hope it is better now between you two.
