Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on October 3, 2013

Is it only me that has a six year old that has gone and lost her mind and thinks that raising her voice to me is okay?

As soon as I ask her something or begin to talk to her about her behaviour, the hands go up and so does the volume.

Now I’m from a time when trying something like that would have raised my mother’s eyebrows to the “Oh no you didn’t!” stage and I would be in quick retreat because I knew I had just stumbled into the war zone.

But my daughter seems completely oblivious to the war zone and the raised eyebrows. I’m sad to say that my Diva girl does not pick up the hint all that quickly. Warning signs mean nothing and she usually ends up in a time out or losing some privilege.

I asked her just this morning why she didn’t listen to the first warning (referring to our battle of wills today) and she just looked at me and shrugged her shoulders.


Do you think if I wore a neon vest and used a foghorn it might help?
