My youngest has recently started yelling "Don't talk to me!" "Don't say anything!" I take it to mean she's overwhelmed and overstimulated and just needs a break in general. Although she's usually the only one saying anything and for some reason it is usually in the car when she's just about to pass out.
Jodi- You're in my 'hood!! I'll send ya a PM
you both are near my preschool. im free after 3
my kid is nuts, but plays well!
we do NOT use the word hate... but kieran picked it up at school from one kid- who he got along with just great, but the other kid was trying out that word by saying 'i hate you' with a big smile and friendly behavior... the director said 'oh it happens every fall, they all say you are not my friend, then in the spring they are all hugging'... well, that kid left the school and we are down to' i don't like you' instead... i'm not sure what they can do anymore than what can i do, but it still bugs me- he would not have learned that word at home! the one that is making me almost cry now is 'you go into another room now'.... sounds little, but feels really mean, like i don't want you around, don't want to be by you... i try to suggest other words, 'i don't like IT', 'i need to be alone', etc, but he would rather spit in my face then say he is sorry... well next time, don't spit! i know he doesn't always have impulse control, but this is a sorry game... on ther other hand, he will not respect his dad's body, i am really getting tired of that one. and he's into not listening about safety, which is odd, cause he has known that one for 2 years- he likes to not listen! i guses it's always something with these kids
tiffany, is there anything we can do to help you? clean house? shop? good luck apt hunting... there has to be something.
