Asking for help.
I am putting my mind into this book and evaluating my little girl as fairly as I can. I need to do this for both of us. I miss A’s infancy. I miss the little cries & whimpers. Toddler cries are way more dramatic! I have to learn how to be less reactive to her whining & crying and more reactive to her underlying needs. I need to set boundaries & stick with them. I need to find my patience and stop “loosing it” when she’s screaming at me. It is hard. Parenthood is so hard. I need to do whatever I can to make it easier and to get out of my own way. I’ve taken the quiz in this book and it seems we have a “Textbook Baby” on our hands….with a little bit of a “Spirited” & “Angel” kid thrown in for good measure! I can’t wait to read the rest of this book! If it doesn’t work, I have some more on the list to read, but I believe in the “Dog Whisperer” so why not the baby one!
