Angry 8-year-old
Jun 4, 2003
I was divorced 3 years ago. It was a really bad marriage and really bad divorce but my eight year old is just starting to act out. She had just turned 5 when we seperated and she never cried or anything but now she yells all the time and nothing I do can calm her down. I've tried spanking(which isn't very often), taking things away, grounding, and time outs but she doesnt care. Before the divorce it was basically her and me all day long because I was a stay at home mom and her dad was gone all the time. Now we have joint custody so I have her a week and her dad has her a week. Her dad didn't waste any time getting remarried right after the divorce was final and I am sure this has something to do with it but I dont know why she is so angry with me. I am the one who left the marriage because he was unfaithful and very abusive (verbaly and emotional) to me. So I guess I was just wondering if anyone else has gone thru something similer to this and can give me some advice. Thanks
