Re: Mommy Mistake - How To Fix? Took Away 5yo's Birthday Party
I would explain to her that I reacted in anger by taking away the party & everyone makes mistakes , mamas & dadas included. I would fix my mistake by giving the party back & modeling appropriate behavior by not being stubborn myself.
I have 4 DDs, 2 can be very stubborn, and 2 display more extreem emotions than their sisters. DH and I have made huge improvements simply by listening, acknowledging that we understand their feelings, not playing the blame game or making them feel as if they are bad kids for feeling extreem emotions, and apologizing for & fixing the mistakes we make ourselves.
