How in the world do you deal with it. Dd wanted to learn to draw daddy mommy and herself. I showed her how. She gets so mad if her circle or lines are not perfect and wants me to do it for her ending in meltdowns. I finally got her distracted but i am concerned about school if she keeps this perfectionism. She has always had encouragement and praise. She's always been advanced with motor skills. But she gets so mad with drawing and writing. I recently realized she was left handed and dh helped her learn to hold the pen for better control. I thought that was the problem but no its because she's a perfectionist. She gets it from me but I don't know how to help her understand its ok to make mistakes.
