Bit late to the party on this one, Michelle, and I read the responses with much interest to your quandary with Addy.

Having read both SJ Mom's and Mary's input, I found I was in agreement with both(!), and all the rest of the remarks here. It just goes to show how difficult parenting can be.

For ne, you took a very reasonable and measured approach to the problem. At the end of the day - and despite nasty provocation - your daughter resorted to minor violence. I probably would have spanked her, were she my girl, but as with you, not severely and with some sadness and reluctance. The important thing was the long conversation the two of you had, I suspect, and Addy now knows where Mom stands on the matter.

Funny with youngsters just how quickly one days' "best friend" can be the next day's "arch enemy". Just immaturity, I guess.
