I just want to cry.
Isn't it the most embarrassing thing to have a child that acts snotty? Or maybe you all have perfect children :)
She was horrible stinker today. Pushing little ones, screaming and crying at kids, not sharing in the least, and otherwise being so MEAN>
She's always had shyness/ social issues. Sometimes it comes out as withdrawing into her own activities, other times like this-- HORRID behaivior.
I get in a hurry and what I should do is slow down and before a playdate go over all the rules, expected behaviors, what she should expect from other children.. etc. etc. This was a new house and new children, and perhaps it was just that. It's one thing one she's mean to her little brother (that sucks too), but when she's mean to others children, other moms I'd like to hang out with, UHUHUHU! What a stink.
WHat do you do? How do you feel? It's just mortifying!!
