Day 18: Persistent little buggers

I was wrong. The mood persists.

So do my Max’s tantrums. No cajoling, cuddling, playing, joking, distraction, shouting, bawling, storming, ignoring or listening is making any difference.

Since I’m not allowed to throw things at my child, I’m wondering whether I can throw all those parenting books at the authors who make it sound like “an approach” will work. I’m joking, of course. Mostly.

I remain optimistic that tomorrow will be better so for tonight, I’ll sit with my sparkling water and woe and I’ll congratulate myself for getting everyone to this point alive.

  1. Unfortunately, the three yr old tantrums persist until( I’ve been told) they’re 5. I’m with you. We’ll virtually hold hands and hum kumbayaπŸ˜‰ as they’re screaming for not being able to zip their coat (because it’s no need for coat today, happened this morning) or because they don’t want to go to bed(every night in my house) , or because you tell them to use the toilet when they get up (mostly every morning in my home)😣😣😣😣 ….i still got one more and he’s winding up for the pitch, (he falls out and screams if food doesn’t come fast enough).
