Hi my girlfriend moved in with her sister to help take care of her 7 year old daughter. The girl was adobted from a woman that worked with my girlfriends sister's husband. The biological mother was a drug user and cause of this the child has a few problems. Not physical except she is smaller than most girls her size. But she has temper problems and is hard to control. My girlfriend has been there for a year and a half and though the girl has calmed down a bit she is still out of control and hard to handle. She throws things at times and doesnt like to listen. Her parents are divided with their parenting skills. One disciplines and the is a best friend type that disciplines when it gets bad. My girlfriend is at her end and with the parents working she is looking after the girl more and is having troubles. Time Out doesnt seem to work. Taking her favorite videos away doesnt work. She just cant get through to her. They have went to see a child therapist. But what he suggested didnt help and they dont have the money to keep seeing this guy. Anyhelp for parents out there for a child who wont listen and throws tantrums and time out will not help? Anything would be appreciated. Thank you!
