  • that is a tough age because of communication. they want to know you understand what they are trying to say and understand their needs, even if they are pissed. Validate it. Say, "I KNOW, you are MAD today! What can we do to make it better?"

  • that's not funny and it's not a question. you should put this in your journal, not here. that way you don't offend those who are bipolar.

  • don't know about journals! and that's why i put that i was not poking fun at anyone! :) sorry if you took it that way! my FIL is bipolar, so i know about it! but what fun is life if you take everything so serious!

    by the way, the latest thing he got upset about was he said was "finished" in the shower, so i tell him "ok, then let's get out" and he freaks out! i think he meant that he was NOT finished! :)

  • Umm to anon. I am bipolar and I took it as a joke. I was thinking yep, so is my kid. I even joke to friends, happy/sad here we go again, just like mom. and they laugh
