Adult and child.
In a BDI interview for motherhood there would be so many great questions.
You are sitting on the couch nursing your 1 month old infant, your toddler is throwing items over the gate down the stairs. How did you stop your toddler & care for the baby?
After a long walk in the spring sunshine, you explain to your toddler that it's time to go in the house. Upon entering he kicks, screams, cries, attempts to get away....you get the door closed but this show of emotion continues and now includes banging his head on the door, then knocking a kitchen chair sideways onto the floor. Meanwhile, the infant is crying needing desperately to be fed. How did you handle the tantrum?
While driving down the Deerfoot your toddler puts his foot on the baby's head and laughs loudly when you tell him to "Take your foot off the baby's head." How do you stop your toddler from continuing this behavior and keep the baby from receiving a sibling induced brain injury?
Oh, I could keep going. The only problem is I don't have the answers. Not effective ones anyway. Any suggestions? I'm open.
Has anyone read this? Thanks to Amazon it's on route to our house.
Last night was a glaring example that I over-eat when stressed. While preparing dinner for W & I (favorite husband was working late), I consumed ALOT of food....crappy food such as 2 chicken weiners, 3/4 box of white cheddar macaroni, cucumber, and a couple pieces of cheese thrown in there for good measure. Okay, so I am now very aware that I binge eat when stressed, so now how do I prevent it? The stress isn't going away. Thank goodness there wasn't any ice cream in the freezer and that I don't like pie or that Saskatoon pie would have been demolished. Good thing I'm not a drinker or I'ld be blogging from rehab with Miss Lohan and the other socialites.
