My 4 yr old is way out of control what do I do?

When I put her in time out she screams, yells she hates me, buffs and puffs, kicks the wall, ect. She refuses to ask for anything or be polite any more. I feel like she don't respect me at all.  A single mother who has been raising her myself since birth. It gets to were I break down and cry I just don't know what to do anymore!!!

What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to Just Ask!

Please consider consulting with your pediatrician and early childhood programs, such as your local Head Start agency or others that work with preschool children.  You should be able to find someone who can refer you to a behavioral resource to help you through these difficult and challenging times. The local school board should have information to get you started.

Good luck!
