And where does she get her goofy personality from? She's silly and cute and she is completely aware of this and takes advantage of her adorable personality.
She has a manipulative and goofy personality, I can tell you where she gets the manipulative part from but the goofy part, I have no idea.
Her "silliness" has gotten out of control and it's mostly my fault. I have always let her get away with a lot. And now, it has completely gotten out of control. She takes advantage of me and it needs to stop. I want her to grow up to be a good, caring, respectable person. And that will be difficult if she can't even respect her parents.
I have come to the realization that these are some of the most important years, that these years will shape the kind of person she will become, and that she won't remember these years (this is the key). She needs to learn to respect her elders and peers. When it comes to disciplining her I have to constantly remind myself of this and be consistent with my discipline, it's so difficult when she give me that goofy smile. Like every parent, I have big dreams for her but none of these dreams will come true if she doesn't grow up to be a strong and respectable person.
