kt is "allowed" one tantrum a day. If she starts to tantrum, she's reminded of the one she had earlier in the day & that usually stops her escalation & such. kt had already had her "allowed" tantrum this morning when husband picked her up from Residential Treatment Center (RTC) for her pass. Too early in the day for her - oh, well.... So she's here & doing her best to throw another tantrum - oops, not allowed, you're already done for the day. "Why, Mommmmmmm?" "Because, I'm goddess & I rule this house." Well, this didn't fly; actually kt's timing was good in that I was in the midst of interviewing a PCA. She got a small picture of tweedleland. I just had to try the "because" response just once though. kt wasn't being logical & I felt I didn't have to be logical either. Nanny nanny boo boo! If I ever try this again, someone come & hit me on the head.
