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 😊
