I would like to add another "t" to the word because I just got done learning this in a parenting class I am attending.

So, for the acronym, I've never heard this before. When they're having , we try each one of those in order to try and fix the situation? Right?

We found another one this weekend that doesn't fit the acronym: In pain!

I tried to get DD's socks on, she wasn't having any of it, I was just as out of it as she was and forced them on, she said they didn't hurt (she said, in fact, that they were "too blue and too comfortable"), DH had Big Feelings and it all went pear-shaped in a bad bad way for a while. When I took the socks off (I had told her she could take them off and wear sandals when we got to our destination if they were still bothering her -- previously this has always solved her issue and we haven't needed to do it) I discovered she had a cracked toenail So she was hungry, triggered (by having me force her socks on), and in pain; I was hungry and tired; DH was hungry and triggered (by hearing her scream). When we got to the quiet, fed point, we were all sane again.

But any pain will make you cranky.

I don't think it has to be in order, exactly, but just to consider them as possibilities. Like, lots of times I'll find I'm cranky b/c I'm hungry!

Default Re: Halt!

I was always taught HALT in the context of working from our overflow and not from our deficit. HALT represents various kinds of voids or needs. These need to get filled in a healthy way or we will act out to get the needs met or filled inappropriately (helping someone because I'm lonely and want to feel needed, eating because I'm tired, controlling people because I'm angry, etc). God has called us to work from our overflow, to give of ourselves generously and not grudgingly. This is really hard for me when I'm exhausted from my infant not sleeping AGAIN and feeling easily lonely because my husband is at work. When loneliness and lack of sleep combine, I end up depressed and angry. I can't always fix the HALT but at least it helps me understand whats going on so that I can stop and pray.
