Why is it always my kid?
Alex always wants to have friends over. Yet when she does she fights and complains the whole time. They are touching her stuff. They are not playing what she wants to play. They are going to ruin her toys. They are going to take her toys. They are going to...they are going to...
The whole time they are here they fight fight fight. Now I would love to get on my high horse and point my finger at these kids and tell you how rotten they are. But truth be told it isn't these other kids that are the problem. It is my kid. She is not flexible and not willing to make any compromises. Everything is her way or the highway.
I can't help but wonder why she wants to have friends over when all she does is fight with them. She gets mad at them for playing with her stuff. I can't help but wonder why these kids come over!! She yells at them and is mean. I don't like playing with her either!!
Whenever there is a problem, you can bet my daughter is the cause of it. When everyone is going left, she is going right. She will not conform no matter what. She is her own person and does what she wants when she wants.
People tell me this will be great when she gets older. She won't follow the crowd and fall to peer pressure. I don't see it that way. I see her as more defiant and stubborn. I see her talking back and rebelling. I see us butting heads.
I love her. I love her with all my heart. She can command my emotions. She can make me more angry then anyone else in the world can. She can fill my heart with love with a single look. She can make me cry, she can make me laugh. She is my everything.
