Long story short our 6 year old daughter has behavioural issues with hitting us. We have tried all techniques from offering her a cuddle to time out and nothing works. We tell her not to hit and she just hits even more. She was placed with us when she was 2.5 years and she basically started it then. We thought she would grow out of this.
She is just very stubborn as well. Today we were going to go out and we asked her to put on her pants. She completely refused even though I offered to help her.
She went on saying awful things to me and started hitting both my wife and I. The only thing we have to resort to is to put her in her room to calm down. Only today she didn't calm down. The tantrum went on for about 40 minutes.
This is breaking my marriage as both my wife and I have argued about this over the years.
We come to a point where we need help ASAP with how stop this kind of behaviour. She is a bright young girl and knows this is wrong behaviour. She's as good as gold at school as we get gushing reports about her behaviour at school.
My question is is what happens when I ring adoption support?
