Default Re: I thought grace baised parenting would show fruit

I don't feel like I am underparenting or even doing extra things to ovoid her out burst - maybe I am some now that dh is home all the time.

I do go back and give her chances and talk to her when she is catastrophisong things. - like she is running 5 min behind so why even start to get to the thing she has been asking to do. Dh think I should just write that off.

I am still making thing happen. School is is getting done the minimal things are happening.

Early bird freaks out screams stomps out slamming every door she can wiggle worm runs and hids in reaction. I comfort wiggle worm get where she is ok frequently hand her the purple noise canseling headphones and then I go and get early bird back on task.

The main things I do to try to avoid ourst is to do my best to have the things she is going to obessover or get hung up on atthe end of the day so that if she does have a huge explosion wiggle worm isn't in the room trying to get anything done.

Where is the line of trying to work years a plan b and making a plan together and jist holding the line and telling her that what she thnks or feels doesn't matter x still has to happen.
