    Has been awhile!
    difficult child is all grown up with difficult child's of her own now! Ha ..pay backs!
    My 7 yr old Grandson keeps her hopping!
    Grade 2 now but this last year was a fight! Calls from the school almost daily> running out of the school. Licking the windows. Being aggressive. Destroys belongings. Etc.

    Bedtime is not something we look forward to! Throws things. .screams. .bangs..walls vibrate! !
    It's hard to watch. Sigh :(
    She has it worse with him than I did with her. Just wish she'd pick her battles. .she needs to let some things go for her on sanity. Ugh

    Welcome back, cuz. You can give your daughter a copy of the Explosive Child. That book helped me learn how to choose my battles.

    I agree, she needs a copy of The Explosive Child! Maybe even What Your Explosive Child is Trying to Tell You.

    You can also pass on the wisdom my aunt gave my mother, and my mom gave me: If you are not going to get up and deal with it, you didn't see it.

    Thank you for your suggestions. Much appreciated and I will look into that for sure! With a 3 month old also trying to sleep but he doesn't care. It's been like this before she was born so it's not her. ♡
