On the way home from picking up my boyfriend's daughters. The 10 year was giving me a little attitude when I asked about her day. I became quieton the way home to avoid conflict. The 10 year and her 7 year old sister talked just fine but then starting fighting. While I was driving the 10 year threw a shoe up front. I was quiet as the 10 year old retrieved it. They started back up again and threw another shoe. This time in a mother voice I said " if you throw one more shoe, you Will be in big effing trouble. They were silent all the way home. The 10 year old went to her room and started bawling. I asked if we could talk.. a lititle reluctant at first but she came around. I asked what was wrong.. she cried and said she missed her mom * her mom took off to California a month ago* I asked if me being upset Tiggered this and started crying.I explained to her that it's not safe to throw shoes while I'm driving and she wouldn't do that when her father is driving. Has anyone dealt with situations like this?
