How much can we expect our children to listen to us and follow a few rules? I seriously do not have many rules in my house and I know a lot of the stuff he is doing are for sensory reasons-like, opening the refrigerator door or the sliding glass door at least 100 times during the day. So, lock them. Simple right? Well, he can unlock them or break something while trying. I am so tired of him spitting on my bed and throwing his juice glass on tbe ground when he is done with it (or not done with it-just throw the juice on down too, why the hell not?) He breaks stuff all of the time with his obsessions and I haven't found the magical way to redirect him to something he is actually intersted in. I keep trying new things and we just get back to the same starting point. We leave the house and go to parks and I try to fill the day with lots of activities, but when we get home it is the same thing again. I'm so frustrated and I am not behaving well at this point either.
We have been up together since 3:30 last night and he simply does not take naps and my husband is out of town for the weekend. I am so tired. We could go drive for an hour and he might fall asleep, but maybe not. I just wish the day was over.
