Drama Mamas Mama

Yep, I have one. Caught her in a lie tonight, so bedtime came real early as punishment. She yelled, screamed and threw herself on the ground going on and on about how "unfair" it was to make her go to bed early.

She kept getting up, so she earned herself a swat on the bottom and an hour and a half of tomorrow's bedtime....

She's only 5....I can't imagine what it will be when she's 15!

I guess I'm not Drama Mama's Mama for nothing....

Well, an earlier bedtime is my favorite punishment. My dd's hate going to bed early, so it's a win/win. Hopefully she will choose not to lie next time.

I still say that when Lilly and Camy turned 6yo that was our worst year (so far) with them. Everything was a daily debate..unfair...meltdown. I thought I was going to go insane. Hopefully Abby wont put us through all that when she turns 6yo.

Well, she's finally calmed down and laying in bed...I know the hissy fit was just to break me down, but I wasn't letting it happen.

Conner got himself an early bedtime tonight too; so I am sitting here and eating some cookies and milk while I enjoy the silence!

Jack went to bed early too, but he was tired... but the meltdowns before were out of this world.

exactly! Ya gotta stay stronger (and more consistent) than them...

Britt and I were just talking last week, about her rebelliousness and she was grateful (as was I ) not to have been one of those who yelled & cursed at me (she said that's because deep down, she knew I was right).

It aint easy..... but you'll get through it.

I don't say much in here. But let me say this. Beth hang in there. You have to be strong and you must pray every day. I had the most strong-willed daughter on earth. Her teenage years were horrible and I didn't think I'd make it. If she could do it she would. Thankfully, we both made it and she tells me everyday she is so glad I stayed on her through it all. She is a mother now and so far she has not had problems with her son. I encourage you to stay strong.

Aunt Rosy - words of wisdom there indeed. And all of you.

Just from me, 'cos I have no experience in these matters except the memories of being a little turd myself. Funny that, because my Mum doesn't remember my being that bad....

Big and to stay strong and consistent. They are a joy but also make you want to pull your hair out. I feel your pain.
