So, we have been really struggling lately with Bean and her bad behaviour. I am convinced that it stems largely from her lack of food intake. I mean, if you were hungry all the time you would be in a foul mood too, right?!
Last night she was up in the middle of the night (hungry probably) and came into our bed where she kicked us so no one got any sleep and whined and whined for breakfast until 7 when I got up to make her some. Then she decided that she wanted to go to breakfast club (a free before school club where they give them their breakfast) so I told her that if she got herself ready she would be able to go, otherwise we wouldn’t make it on time.
Cue whining and eventual temper tantrum and emotional breakdown – and that is just me! Seriously, her bad behaviour really tests my patience and today I failed. But as ever, I am inspired to do better tomorrow. She is just one of those kids who needs a LOT of attention and feeding her attention seeking with negative attention is only making it worse.
Here’s to a better day tomorrow.
