I think my difficult child has got to be one of the most negative people in the world - barring her father who she got it from. She's always been negative, this isn't a new thing. It's just that I'm with her 24/7 now and it's svcking the life out of me. She complains about everything, everything is stupid, she doesn't want to do it, and if I hear one more time that there is nothing to eat I'm going to explode. And when she doesn't want to do something - which is pretty much anything you ask of her unless you catch her on a good day - there is hell to pay. It's yelling and hostility and stomping and slamming. Then she cools off and it's like nothing ever happened. I know it's going to work that way, but WHY do we have to go through that whole process in the interim?? Why does she have to spend 2 hours complaining and moaning and being nasty about something before her mood COMPLETELY changes and everything is fine. And what can I do to make this any different? I'm ready to pull my hair out.
