I've been having some real big problems with my 4 year old daughter, still. Quite frankly, I'm so tired of feeling like I don't deserve anything and that I'm living in a prison. I don't know what else to do anymore.

I try to take into consideration that my daughter was sexually molested by her biological father (dealt with through court etc which is why I haven't been here in the last little while) but there's got to be a point where she stops blaming me for it. She is still seeing a psychologist but that's been no help.

This is what I deal with every single day with my daughter. I get up (IF I've slept) and start clearing up her messes. I ask her to have a bath, she screams and yells and runs around the house naked and swears (yup, she's taken to cussing worse than a sailor). If she decides that she's hungry (even though I've already made her a big healthy meal) she will go into the kitchen and scream at the top of her lungs until I come in there to try to stop her (I have every single cupboard and drawer LOCKED as well as the fridge and freezer). IF I've bought myself a chocolate (easter egg) it'll be gone because she's managed to get it before I've had a chance to even get it put away. She constantly is into my makeup, which is in the ensuite and literally hangs in the middle of the ceiling about an inch from the ceiling. She has a 8:00 bedtime, and a routine that we start at 7:30pm. IF I'm lucky she'll eventually fall asleep anywhere from 11pm until 3am. She absolutely refuses to clean up her toys and makes a mess everywhere in the house. It's at the point where I've given away 99% of her toys as punishment for leaving them laying around.

This child is literally into absolutely everything, and I don't know where I went wrong other than being forced by the courts to let her biological father (whom has been charged with domestic violence to myself and pled guilty to, AND has been charged with child abuse ... all of which the courts know about). On a good day, I'm lucky if I can get 3 hours sleep, but typically I have to go for days without sleeping. The same with eating, I'm lucky if I eat 1 meal a day, and even more fortunate if I can get a snack for myself.

I've tried pretty much everything, and don't know what else to do. She's been tested for a variety of things and every single test has come back normal. I've tried spanking her (as a last resort), but she just laughs at me and tells me that I'm a bi**h. I live under lock and key in my own house, and my day is spent literally cleaning and laundry. I can't take it anymore,


(I literally walk around the house with keys so that I can unlock one door and lock another behind me).
