Man this kid has been testing me BIG time! Threenager has NOTHING on this 5 year olds attitude, I don’t know quite what to do with his defiance. Sometimes I burst out laughing at his responses and sometimes I want to deliver the hiding of his life. I know that this is how he learns boundaries and his place in the world but this mama is tired and her patience is thin. I try ignore the negative behavior and only give attention to the positive but it’s hard in the heat of the moment. All I can do is try and always try to do better.
