Jack is - man - I don't know what he is right now. I think it is partially because his routines are all messed up, and partially just his age, but he is really acting out. He tends to direct his misbehavior towards me, to the point that he will straight up laugh in my face when he is in trouble (or he will stand at the door and scream for his Dad, which is sad, but also incredibly hard to handle).
I am just so frustrated, I want so much for this kid, you know? And he has so many amazing qualities that I want to encourage, but as moms we are called to do more than just encourage their good side, we have to help them learn to curb their not so good side as well.
I guess I feel like when I try to talk to him, to explain WHY his behavior is not okay, he completely tunes me out. He is only two and a half, so if we are having a communication issue, I know that it is up to me to change the way we are communicating - but...how?
No really. How?
