hi sooo been so easy child consumed as of late.. difficult child is eating, eating well, eating everything all the time. had to put a break on meals because she's just eating 24/7. lol. which is good yet she still needs to learn 3 healthy meals a day and one snack, so i'm working on it. yet haven't heard a word about her throat at all! i'm soo happy to say. now what i have seen since we have returned is alot of name calling to me by her. which is a rarity i'll admit. only when she's truly in a rage will she be difficult. yet lately it's your a jerk, your a baby, your so lazy i hate you, i cant' stand you. on and oni t goes. refusing to listen at every turn. it's like i'm handling easy child. i've punished her each time. she just lost tv again for tonight due to her mouth and insulting me again. there's no build up like the normal rages, at all. it's just utter disrespect. i was always afraid easy child's attitude and nastiness would catch on. we're at the 12 mark difficult child's birthday's in a week i'm sure the hormones are kicking up bad. yet she's turning on me in a way in which she never has just thru functioning normally in our day and with really mean insults. what else do i do besides punish and say hey it's wrong to speak to me that way. than give her coping skills and alternatives when she's angry and that lashing out isnt' the right thing to do. its shocking actually i can see how nasty difficult child's going to be on an ongoing daily basis.
