I don't know how many of you have your child in a day care, school, etc., but I have noticed the longer she stays home with mommy and daddy, the more unruly she gets.
A few weeks ago, unruly simply meant that she took longer to follow directions, turned her selective on a little more often, gave me a little more sass than normal. Whether it be for vacation or illness, the time spent at home seemed to make Stella slightly off.
Stella being off now is a whole other story. Somehow the "terrible twos" has crept up on us like a tornado. The last two days has been spent with screaming, shouting, kicking, and hitting. I am well aware that Stella still doesn't feel completely back to normal but I want to know where my little angel went.
As if being home with a sick child wasn't hard enough, the hubby and I both now have the flu. Our patience is a little thin and these temper tantrums have really put us to the test.
Aside from putting Stella in a "time out" spot, I can't figure out what else to do. This morning she woke up throwing a nice little fit that lasted 45 min. I read that when I child is sick, teaching them behavior best be put on hold, but I just can't take it. It is ridiculous. And apparently normal.
What are the tricks? Am I doing the right thing my making her sit until she calms down? Is this simply from being away from her normal routine or is this the start of a long few months?
I need help and fast. I about to go bald from pulling my hair out.
