Today Rayne threw the worst fit yet. I call it ‘The Fit from Hell’. She was being extremely sweet when she first got home. But suddenly, the second she doesn’t get her way, she smacks me in the face. So I brought her inside for a time out on the couch. This was meant to be just a couple minutes, then she’d apologize and we’d go play. But it turned into something much worse.
She did not want to sit there.
There was kicking.
There was hitting.
There was hyperventilating.
It got dramatic. So I said, “Time to go to bed.”
This went on for a very long time.
After about 45 minutes…
There was an apology and kiss. And we moved on.
I know this is pretty normal at this age. And it will probably get worse before it gets better. But this behavior is incredibly exhausting!
