Do you pay your child an allowance? How old are they? How much do you give?

We are having a lot of trouble with my 6 year old daughter lately. We have her in counseling about all the changes she has had in her life – divorce, remarriage, 2 moves, 3 school changes, etc. But it is not the big changes that seem to bother her, it is the little changes – stopping one activity and moving to another, getting to bed, getting up in the morning, bath, dinner, etc. We are reading two parenting books about strong-willed children, which she has been since birth. We are starting to practice those skills and some are working already but some are causing her to rebel even more. She wants her way NOW and how she wants it! I know this is one of those things that may get worse before it gets better as she tests the new limits we are setting before realizing they are solid and relaxing into them. But until then it is very trying and I have lost my patience twice and slammed a door, which I never do and hate when my ex would do and when my daughter does now. I don’t know if I have less patience due to being tired from the illness and medication or if she is getting better at pushing my buttons, but it seems to be getting harder to keep it together as she fights. Plus, my husband and I don’t always agree on how to handle her. He is much more strict than I am. I was so abused as a child that I want to make sure my daughter knows I love her. I know I need to set limits and that it is part of loving her to raise her to behave as well, but it is hard to let her cry and yell and say we don’t care about her.

Temper temper
How do you deal with a full out temper tantrum (kicking, hitting, biting, etc.) with Love & Logic? Especially if she will not stay in her room for it?

Current Mood: confused

Opening statement
I had my first Love and Logic seminar last night and it was great! We have already tried some of the techniques and they worked almost as easily as promised. Anyone else have experience with them?
