Meltdown meltdown go away and don’t come back another day. Wishful thinking, I know.
Gavin had a ginormous meltdown this evening and the Lost and Tired family is still recovering from it. I’ll have more on that later. I just needed to purge a bit before I lose what’s left of my mind.
I get sooooo sick and tired of having to consider whether or not it’s worth it to discipline Gavin because of the inevitable meltdown that will follow. I wish things were simpler and I could just show Gavin what he did wrong and that would be it.
Instead, if I find myself in a situation where I need to discipline Gavin and choose to do so, I have to be ready to deal with the consequences of my actions and the entire Lost and Tired family pays the price. If you think about it, that’s really messed up.
Tonight was one of those nights and I just dread the thought of him getting bigger and stronger and continuing with this behavior.
I know I’m not the only one in this situation and my heart goes out to all of you. Hang in there. I’ll try and do the same.

Choosing a method of disciplining a child is really a difficult task. But we really need to make them understand what's right from wrong.
