She Screamed for 3 Hours!!

Good Afternoon. 

This post is an emotional one. Today  was suppose to be our fun day out. First the Library, then the Pet Store, and finally to the Post Office to mail a book and picture to our friends Sylvia and Bethany. 

Unfortunately Chloe was very grumpy and had extreme back talking issues when she woke up. So, wanting to be a good parent, I took our fun day away after she wouldn’t stop yelling for 45 minutes. Well she was not happy and the yelling turned into 3 hours of blood curdling screaming 😫 I kid you not!!

My husband was trying to work, so I took her to her room and closed the door.  Imagine a small bedroom and a child screaming and crying as loud as they can. Even with headphones on it was killing my ears. I tried everything,  but if you know about Autism and meltdowns, nothing works except to let them finish.

The difference between a tantrum and meltdown is a tantrum can stop once they get what they want. A meltdown is worse. The child doesnt hear you or acknowledge you most of the time. They just BLOW!!!! Chloe went on for 3 hours and by then I was fighting back tears. I texted friends and family to pray. I needed help. 

Once she was through I fed her lunch and collapsed in my recliner. My ears are buzzing and my neck is stiff from sitting in her room on the floor so long. I am praying she is finished. 

I decided to do Kroger Clicklist for groceries. No more noise for me today. As Chloe ages I lean on God more and more. I’ll admit I’m a bit scared. She is almost as tall as me and weighs close to 100 pounds and shes not done growing yet. I know we will have good days and bad days, but discipline is still a battle. Nothing seems to work. I just pray❤

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend 😊

  1. Hello dear mama. I am right there with you today. I happened to see this email of a new blog post of yours and clicked on it. I’m so grateful to know that I am not alone in my struggles today. I even took a picture of myself crying after my son knocked over a hot cup of coffee. It was just the blowing point of a really tough morning. We had to leave our homeschool PE class this morning after just 10 minutes. He is 5 and it’s so hard to be in public when he does not listen to me. And there is not a thing I can do about it. I used to be able to pick him up and carry him, but no more. Discipline is such a huge issue for us as well. My husband and I feel as though we live in two separate worlds. He works and I stay home. Even when he is home, he feels like he has no clue how to help. Such a struggle in this world. I am praying for you and I ask for prayers in this department as well. God bless you for sharing.
