Does anyone ALWAYS stay positive around anyone, especially challenging children.  I love my girls, but not me.  But maybe that's a good thing.  I don't want hem thnkingthir frustrations and negativity are wrong or unusual.  In fact I taught my 3yo thats its ok tobe frustrated, but its not ok to say "Im not gonna be your friend anymore"  She tell sme several times a week "Mommy I'm frustrated with you" and I'm ok with that :)

And to add, childrn learn from negative moments also. The world isn't perfect and  they will experience many negative moments. We should teach them how to handle them.
