The Boy has stopped going to bed at a decent hour. He is refusing all his oral meds/supplements. He is now afraid of my washer and won’t stay inside if there are more than 3 of us in the house. He is sitting in the car for HOURS plaing on an electronic device. All we have left is an old iPhone 4 that he can use now. The iPod touch is outside somewhere. Well, after the thunder storm we had – pretty sure it’s toast. The iPad we had was destroyed and the Samsung we were gifted he found and shattered as well.
Cue my feeling like a worthless parent.
I wish I could find things he enjoys. Something non-electronic he could play.
I have seen him in the sandbox.
I have let him play a little with the water from the hose.
He has spent a moment or 2 on the tire swing.
So what does my boy like to do?
With a broken heart, I have to admit – I just don’t know.
And guess what? It’s not my fault.
And now I’m going to take some time to try and convince my heart
Do you ever feel like you are failing as a parent? Do you ever feel like there are so many things that you ‘should’ know and you just don’t? You are not alone!!
