Oh, I have quite the spirited one, a spirited extrovert at that.....Yes, it is exhausting. We plan to homeschool as well.
The feeling that EVERY moment has to be a teaching moment--"You seem to be feeling X? When you feel X, here are some ways you can react that are acceptable."
Honestly, if I don't exercise at least 5 times a week, I am not a good parent for a spirited child. If I get my little endorphin buzz, then I am able to go the distance.
At 12, there...
