MY 5 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAS BEEN GETTING IN TROUBLE A LOT AT SCHOOL BY NOT FOLLOWING DIRECTION, NOT LISTENING TO THE TEACHER, SHE HIT A LITTLE GIRL AFTER THE GIRL HIT HER FIRST, SCREAMED AT THE TEACHER, WILL NOT STAY IN HER SEAT, ETC. SHE IS A VERY SMART 5 YR OLD WHOM KNOWS ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE BEING TAUGHT IN HER CLASSROOM AND LIKES TO BE CHALLENGED. SHE IS THE SAME WAY AT HOME. I FIND MYSELF FIGHTING WITH HER AS IF SHE IS A TEENAGER. I AM AT A LOSS AND DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE I CAN DO. I HAVE TRIED EVERY EFFORT TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. I AM VERY CONSISTENT WITH THE DISCIPLINE BUT THINGS SEEM TO BE GETTING WORSE. I JUST NEED TO KNOW WHAT CAN HELP. PLEASE HELP ME
