Liii asks:

Why is my 4 year old daughter misbehaving so much?

I am 34 weeks pregnant and my 4 year old daughter is so naughty lately. She doesn't listen to anything. She destroys things. Yells and hits.

What the Expert Says:

We are not sure why your daugther is behaving this way, but with how far along you are in your pregnancy we hope that you can bring in some reinforcements to help with parenting her right now.  Family, neighbors, church members, anybody who can even give you a break every once in awhile could be very helpful right now.  Also consider going to the following website...

And type in your city.  That will then pull up a phone number you can call (usually simply 2-1-1) which is a referral line for your local area.  Ask them if they have any information on parent support groups.  These groups are very helpful and can provide you with skills, resources, and tips for how to manage you child when she misbehaves and you may be able to meet and work with other parents who are struggling as well.  It's worth a shot!

Please take care and remember that you can call the Boys Town National Hotline 24 hours a day at the number below, free of charge to discuss any parenting issue.  We are here to help, you are not alone!
