So, my name is Amanda. I'm a mom of four, and all that goes along with that territory. I work hard, I'm laid back, my house is ear splitting loud, and I am worn out to the bone. I've got four kids, all of whom I love dearly. I have Elizabeth who is 8, Caleb who is 5, Emily who is 4, and Luke who is 2 and also happens to have Down Syndrome. I'm an eclectic type of Mom and have always done the best I could. My three youngest children are all great, and then there is Elizabeth. Elizabeth is soon to be finished with the second grade, and has had isues since she was about four. I have a severe case of insane inlaws, and of course, they have spoiled her beyond the scope of "doting grandparents." For awhile, I assumed this was Elizabeth's problem. She seemed very selfish, never satisfied, and had a very short fuse. While she was extremely vocal at home, I'd never seen a kid so shy out in public. This behavior has progressed into Kindergarten. Fast Forward a few years, and now I have a kid who growls, screams, kicks, yells, lies, cries, and is basically wearing me down to the point of no return. She is a bully at school, doesn't do her homework, and only has a few friends. She doesn't listen, laughs when her siblings are hurt or in trouble, and is completely uncontrollable. I have gone from priding myself in being so laid back, so cool, so chill LOL...And now...I am darn near insane from the trouble it has caused in our family. I have...NO IDEA what else to do, which is why I'm here. I'll try anything. Looking forward to hearing from you all.
