Brooke (5 years with spd).... this child is going to be the death of me! Everything , and I mean everything, is an argument. I say black she says white just to argue. She wanted so badly to do gymnastics, so I got her in a class and she loved it. The first 2 weeks anyway.
Last week she couldn't reach the bar so she walked out of class and refused to do anything else. The last 20 minutes was me telling her she had to stay in the gym until class was over and several times of me walking or carrying her back in. Then today, she refused to go in at all. I talked to the office manager, who was helpful and got Brooke to go back in. But she refused to participate. Finally, she did the balance beam, but got upset when she didn't do it perfect. She would not go participate anymore.
The office manager offered a parent-tot class instead. So I am taking my 5 year old to a 2-3 year old class because... ugh...I don't know. A completely difficult schedule now because dh has to take ds and there is a very small window between school ending and class beginning. Not to mention it being over right at rush hour. My schedule that day is already packed. Yes I am upset because it is inconvenient. And because I just hate her attitude of not doing things because she *might* fail. Homework has been a fight every single night because she gets mad that her lines aren't perfect the first time. I never expect perfection and always teach my kids to try. Just try and I am happy and proud.
I got to the point where I just could not talk to her because I was afraid I would yell and say bad things to her.
