I am usually really good at helping others in this situation but I am at a loss. We try very hard not to use punishment but I am running out of ideas. I know he needs me more than ever now and I am trying to give him extra attention, but I'm so tired. I've been yelling and crying... a lot. When I break down and cry it upsets him so much. He's started to say, "It's all my fault!" I feel so bad for him. :'-(
I love Janet Landsbury but I can't even find what I need on her blog because I am that tired. I'm looking for non-punitive solutions (no time outs or manipulation). I know he is acting out because he is nervous about the changes but I just don't know how to get through to him and give him what he needs. What does he need that I could be missing???
Telling me to chill out might be helpful as well. I'm a wreck over here!! :-P
