I'm going to lose my fucking mind!!!!!! I apologize ahead of time, I'm just typing like I'm thinking and not bothering to censor myself. If it's not one thing it's another, it feels like I'm so frustrated with my daughter lately, she's 7 and I know she's at that age where she's not very capable of being responsible but it's like almost everyday and definitely every week she's losing stuff at school. If it's not a t-shirt it's a jacket, or a book, or a water bottle, or a snack box.. or SOMETHING.. she's just ALWAYS losing shit. And my daughter needs glasses and soon I'm going to start having to send her to school with glasses and I KNOW she's going to probably lose them unless I tape it to her head. Wtf? I can't keep buying her glasses if she keeps losing them. I get frustrated because lately it feels like EVERYDAY she loses something and sometimes it's recovered but other times it's not but then I get mad because we just spoke about this the day before! And then, me.... I feel shitty.. because I yell. And I know it's doesn't help but it's like oh my god....... every.... fucking.....day.. REALLY? And my daughter, she's smart, she has a good memory.. she remembers everything but when it comes to her own personal belongings.. all that goes out the window. I tried taking things away, things she likes, privileges that she gets.. but nope. That hasn't been working. I don't know how to teach her to be responsible for her own things.. or how to not forget her things.. I'm at a loss. Some help please?
