I have noticed lately that I react badly when easy child says or acts in ways similar to difficult child. I am having the hardest time not reacting to the actions with an overreaction. I know how bad that is but at the same time my difficult child PTSD kicks in and I immediately feel like I am dealing with difficult child. It normally happens over the phone, probably because easy child sounds like difficult child and I can't see her face so all I can hear is the tone of voice and the words. Grant it she is not being horrible and calling me names just throwing a little attitude around. For right now I am just cutting it off quickly and then trying to let it go. How do you guys deal with it when you see/hear your easy child doing difficult child things? How do you control that guy reaction?
