You can tell end of term is looming in our house. The tell-tale signs are evident for everyone to see. Grumpiness, tiredness, irritability, and I’m not much better!
With another few weeks still to go, I’m not sure how I’m going to continue to handle the tiredness induced frustration that comes with this endofterm-itis. We’re using every trick in the book and I’m managing to stay very calm with it all, but oh my, the screaming and yelling that come when he doesn’t get his own way.
Many kids are like this of course at this time of year, but I’m anxious that we respond to it appropriately, and with it increasing in intensity, frequency and volume, I don’t know if I can continue to stay as calm as I have…any ideas?
Can you help this adoptive mum? How do you respond to these tired-tantrums in your house? Are your children suffering from endofterm-itis too?
