I know that sounds extreme
but she is so mean and disrespectful
every word that comes out of her mouth is full of mockery
she is mean to her siblings
she is a bully to me
I try to step away when I feel that I'm dysregulated but she follows me and insists that I talk to her, insists that I say certain things, make promises etc. etc.
She doesn't respect that I need my space so that I can calm down
She will go on for hours and hours

I'm so lost and sad and angry.

How is her life outside of the home? Does he have friends? Does she do well in school? Is she a happy person? Behavior is communication and she's clearly trying to express something to you the question is what.

The book the explosive child is very helpful for kids like this. Www.livesinthebalance.org is a good resource if you dont want to buy the book the parent section is really helpful.

If you're interested in biomedical/alternative treatments to help regulate her nervous system, I can share some ideas.

The consequences of modern parenting.

Pre schoolers must know very, very, very well
That they must be very respectful to parents.

And can't be mean to siblings.

One idea that might help a little:
Dr Becky said to imagine a glass wall in between the two of you.
So if she is dysregulated, the wall is in between so you don’t have to receive all her emotions.

Dd was that way. I regret that I let her bully especially one ds. Otherwise I only suggest to not reply and let her talk. Therapy is good if she agrees separate her from siblings and give the siblings support

I have a kid like that. Not sure why it took us so long to start therapy for my child and me. My kids therapist encouraged us to view our child as having special needs and that’s been very helpful for me. Also therapist strongly encouraged meds which has been less helpful bec my child has reacted to every one that we’ve tried. I guess it’s a work in progress. Having therapy for both me and child has been life changing because I have support and guidance. It’s not all on me anymore

Does she have a diagnosis? Bc it sounds like she's got an underlying issue, such as DMDD, ODD, maybe ASD, maybe anxiety....there are quite a few options....best to take her to a professional who can diagnose her accurately so that you can start the appropriate medications and get her the appropriate therapies. And then you'll also be able to find parenting classes geared towards parents of kids with her issues. Because normal parenting classes won't necessarily help you deal with her.

BTW I have a chassan for her. Two years older than she is, and your daughter sounds exactly like him. Let me know in seven years if you're interested in a shidduch. Hiding

But you've got other kids. Who are suffering enough from their sister, they don't need to lose their mother because of their sister as well.
