I am starting to think that the general population may have been too hard on Joan Crawford.
I mean, is tying your children to the bed at night really all that bad?
Because I am seriously considering going that route with one of my children. Can you guess which one? It's not just that she comes into my room every.single.night and wakes me up. It's the screaming temper tantrums that follow being taken back to her own room. Tantrums that often wake up everyone else in the family.
Last night I literally had to lie on top of her to keep her from hurting herself (or me) while she kicked and screamed. Once she calmed down, she just whimpered and cried every time I tried to leave her.
I don't know what has caused this behavior. She doesn't seem scared. Just determined.
I need more coffee...
