Why is it that the only time the 9 year old does puts on her "big girl panties" and does what she should is when I have to be crabby? Are there special powers I didn't know about? When she was little, we called it "Mommy Voodoo". She'd only fall asleep or calm down with me. Now.. I ask 6,7,12 times for her to do something. I put on the mean crabby voice and WHAM!! things get done.
does anyone else have this issue?
