OH baby - that's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo not the case.
Our DD is so sweet and so adorable and so cute - you'd just die. But - talkative, talkative, talkative. A social butterfly as one of her strengths AND one of her weaknesses. In pre-school and kindergarten she could charm her way out of trouble but in first grade she has met her match. And it has been hard. VERY hard. My stomach clenches up because it's like WHAT NOW? I never thought I'd be one of the ego-moms living through my kids but I don't think any of us can help it.
If you're worrying about this, you're doing good.
If you let it take over, that's too much.
Your daughter should know she is loved, should know what the rules are, and should know you lvoe her despite it all. Or because of it all. Or whatever.
It's like my heart breaks when she gets in trouble but I know she knows the rules. We love them so much!
