Luckily, my friend is just as upset by this as I am. But the bad news is that DC doesn’t seem to be taking it well. I’ve been observing more and more examples of ‘sensitive’ behavior from her and these two things seem to be feeding off each other.
I think she has regressed into an overly passive role (giving away her toys, offering anything and everything to friends, playing whatever the other child wants, asking friends if they will stay forever). But, the regression is probably part of the cause as much as it is part of the problem.
I don’t know. It’s hard to deal with. Emotionally, to see her be so giving…desperate for approval is worrying in a way that I didn’t think it would be. I thought I would be proud by something like this, yk? But, I’m not.
But, hopefully, this is just a cross roads. We’ve had these situations before where DC regresses a little while she’s dealing with something and it’s usually followed by a really nice wave of development. A mom can dream, right?
Troll? Here's me...
