- No, we can’t just hit people whenever we don’t like something they say or the way they look at us…even if it’s your brother.
- No, we can’t yell at people “shut up” in a mean voice every time they talk…even if it’s your brother.
- When I tell you to go to your room, it’s not okay to say no and run away from me. GO.
I had to physically place her in the room for a time out (not an easy task) she completely LOST it (everything went BOOM) when I closed the door. She was so loud with her screeches and screams of frustration “DON’T CLOSE THE DOOR,” (no one wants the hear you, take 15 minutes and calm down) pounding on the door ensues. Toys being thrown at door. Wow. It was like she couldn’t control herself. At first, I feared I had given birth to Medusa. I cautiously opened the door to peek in on her, half expecting her curly hair to move like snakes and start snapping at me and her eyes to glow, trying to turn me to stone . However, I am so THANKFUL to report, that she was just temporarily possessed…and went a little Linda Blair on me. No biggie. No exorcism required. The calm after the storm was here. (and some lost privileges)
