I want to thank all of you for your great advice. Each and every one of you made me feel a whole lot better. I appreciate it more than words could ever say.
The day after I decided to take my daughter out to play again and then told her we needed to go back in to wash up for lunch and I was completely shocked that she said "okay mommy, thank you for always playing with me" and she walked right in the house with me. Since that day, she has been behaving like a little angel. She has been listening, some that has been a problem now for a while. My family is also shocked because she is listening to me, very well-mannered now, and very happy, loving and affectionate.
Thanks again and take care.
