More drama

I think I need to find a book to read on how to raise an emotional child.  My 5 years old daughter (6 years old to be in four months) has been extremely sensitive and emotional as of late.  She is such an out going, active, and super sweet kid when she is out of the house but once she goes home, she becomes a whiny and emotional kid that sometimes I just wanted to ignore her.  Perhaps it has to do with her being the only child for awhile and was spoiled by everyone has turned her into a sensitive child?  Or could it be genetics?  My parents told me that I was a cry baby because I was spoiled by my great grandma.  I cried daily for the entire preschool year.  How unfortunate for my parents back then.  I now get to be in their shoes. I guess karma has come to get me now.  On a good day, meaning she gets whatever she wishes, then she behaves and listens well. But one a bad day, like yesterday, oh man, I just wanted to either lock her up in her room or just tuned out because I was completely stressed out with her. It all started after I have picked her up from the sitter. She wanted to go over to her friend’s house again, which she did the day before so I said “no”. She began to sob then I explained to her why she couldn’t go but all she kept saying was “I want…, I want…”. Anyways, she has made me so irritate that whatever she wanted I denied. And that made her more upset. Things cooled down a bit after she got what she wanted, an ice-cream cone but just the cone because she can’t have ice-cream. When her dad came home, her emo, as I call it, came back because she wanted him to wipe her butt after a #2, then wanted him to feed her dinner instead eating it herself. When he didn’t spooned her, she came to me and whine for this and that. So her dinner lasted for two hours with crying and tantrums throwing breaks in between. Her sister, on the contrary, was super quiet and behaved like an angel. I hope her once she starts kindergarten, her emo will get a little bit more stable and less stubborn (this might be in her genes too).

she was embarrased and upset when I tried to take a picture of her crying.
