6 year old's disrespect reaches new heights


Hello. Starting in the last two weeks, my 6-year old daughter has ratcheted up her disrespectful tone, language, and behavior to an awful degree. If I ask her what is going on with her she blames me or her dad for any manner of things she can think of. Time out and the occasional spanking (which she follows with sticking her tongue out) don’t phase her. Since her dad and I live separately I’m trying to figure out what we can both do. He is resistant to the tickets. He has agreed to one of the techniques Dr. Rosemond recommends, the “Dr. Cure” strategy. Is this the right course? Her dad is taking her on a long-planned vacation in 12 days. I’m wondering when we “kick her out of the Garden of Eden.” Thank you.
