I'm never making cupcakes again. Good or Bad idea ?
Sometimes you just want to make a snack with lots of frosting. I tried to explain to my child that we don't have cupcakes for breakfast. She then figures out the fridge lock and takes a cupcake.
So, I said FINE...that's the last one you are having today because you didn't listen to mom. I explained again that we don't have them for breakfast. It's not healthy.
Then later, she demands another one and throws a fit. So, I said FINE have it but I'm never making cupcakes again. I threw them all in the garbage.
My daughter has high functioning autism but I know she understands what I'm saying to her. She can really put up a fight to get what she wants. She is VERY VERY persistant. I'm tired of not being able to say NO and her not accepting NO when I say it the first time.
I guess it's just better to avoid making anything with frosting and sprinkles ever again. But "No means No" and by throwing out the cupcakes or never making them again means that I'm changing the world for her and I shouldn't do that. She needs to learn "No" and respect my authority. HOW DO I MAKE THAT HAPPEN ? How do you get a kid on the spectrum to respect your authority ?
Just to note: I have nowhere to hide the cupcakes except the fridge and perhaps I just should have thrown all the cupcakes in the trash to begin with.
P.S. my child is 5 and yes, I admit that I'm at my wits end with behavior management. The speech delay made behavior management a little tricky which snowballs into her still having tantrums. I want to fix this.
So...should I ever make cupcakes again ? (and oh God, spare me, if you're going to say you only make organic or just veggie cupcakes or you wouldn't be caught dead ever eating a cupcake. That isn't the real world. Someone, somewhere will make cupcakes again. LOL )
