My children are fighting all. the. time. And I'm about to pull my hair out. Separation is the only thing that I have found works for them and me. But that includes whining and complaining.
They are not lacking in department of quality time, as I have spent many hours this week doing school, reading, watching a video, playing outside, special treats, and so on.
Frankly, I'm beat and would love to hand my kids over to a babysitter or daycare center for the day.
Okay - that's honest for ya.
Any ideas on what to do with my fighting kids? I've noticed it is mainly due to a certain 5 year old who feels the need to boss his brother around on EVERYTHING. Z-man has decided that the best way to handle this is to either yell, cry, or whine. I have tried scripture and praying about it. And I'm certainly aware that this is a long term teachable moment. But for the love of pete, is there any sort of quick solution that will bring me sanity??????
Can you feel the love? Because I think I'm oozing it right this second? Or NOT!
C'mon Jesus, send relief....send relief.
****Update: It's now 11am and I'm trying to relieve myself with chocolate and a cup of tea. It hasn't worked yet....
