Okay, I am having a problem with my daughter. Whenever I ask or tell her to do something she will ignore me. Literally, she will act like I am not even there.

One thing you will learn about me is that I am not a big fan of daycare. They usually can only afford to pay their employees minimum wage which means they can't keep employees long and the Teacher's Aides have little or no experience in the field.
