She went 6 weeks without a single incident but has now had a couple of problems each week.
At the school's veiled request we had her evaluated for ADHD but the counselor said she didn't have it.
Yesterday was bad she pinched two of her friends over an argument about what allergies are.
We discipline her. And we reward her on her good behavior.
But I don't know why she is still having behavior problems this late in the year.
This morning I lost it. She was being defiant, trying to play with her toys when she needed to be in the bathroom. I yelled at her and she screeched so I spanked her.
In the bathroom she was goofing off and spit toothpaste all over her clothes, the floor and counter. And I almost slapped her, I realized what I was doing about midslap and stopped myself. It didn't hurt her. She didn't cry but she knows a spanking is discipline and the slap was done in anger.
I feel terrible. I try not to be aggressive to her so she is not aggressive but after this bad week and bad start to the morning, I just reacted. Very badly.
My hubby is home today so he took her to school and he is bringing her lunch and picking her up from school. So if she has a bad day he is the one who has to deal with the school. My nerves are shot. 5 days left but it feels like forever.
