Ok so my 4 yr old daughter is very smart and switched on for her age, she is very well mannered and has a very friendly personality. BUT everytime I take her on a shopping trip for groceries or clothes she turns into this devil child I don't know!! She won't listen to me she walks off round the shop, runs around, back answers me like a smart arse. I see other kids walking with there mums ad staying with them, it upsets me.I've tried everything from bribery, walking off on her, smacking (only a tap) threatening..... I just don't know what to do, I would live to give her a good old belting but people these days are against smacking so I don't want people to be thinking I abuse my child. It's come to the point I walk out of the shop nearly in tears and not wanting to leave the house with her.
Also she is absolutely perfect for her day care mum a little angel
