Why is my child an angel at school but a nightmare at home?
Topic: Why is my child an angel at school but a nightmare at home?
My daughter is a beautiful, wonderful feisty child who's recently been testing our patience at every opportunity. She won't listen to a word we say, gets angry at the drop of a hat and actively defies us.
But at school, she's an absolute angel. She comes home from school with a gold star almost every day and the teachers praise her behavior, saying they never have to tell her twice. She's the first in the class to help her classmates.
Is it because she's more afraid of the teachers than she is of us? Is it because she works so hard at being good at school that by the time she gets home she has to act out?
No one quite believes that this sweet little girl turns into a tyrant the moment she gets home!
