Recently my DD7 has been talking in such a way that has a tone/attitude in her voice. I feel part of it could be due to health issues but nonetheless, it's been hard to handle. Maybe being 7 it's the age too. She can be sweet and kind and then at other times be demanding - likes to be the boss.
My husband and I have been doing time outs (he leans more this way). I tell her that she needs to go into her room until her heart is sweet. She most times will go and then comes down with I think a sincere "I'm sorry". We then talk about what just happened. It just seems that when she does or says something I'm not thrilled with that she's not in the mood to talk it out then so the break helps. I just don't like "sending her away" to her room. Is there a better way to handle it?
