No nattering

October 1, 2012

Let me be honest. My 5 1/2 year old daughter has been driving me nuts. Everything is a complaint, an argument or a crying tantrum!

On my last nerve, I actually googled for parenting advice. (no, really!)

I stumbled across and article by Dr. Sears… And in one of his points was “no nattering” and how it just makes kids behavior (and self esteem) worse.


I am a world, champion natter these days. She can’t do anything right and I am on her case about it. (tonight during stories, it was about her sniffing rather than blowing her nose.). Let me tell you, her and I can turn something like this into a knock-down, drag-out power struggle.

Sigh. (Crud.)

Guess I know what I will be working on next week!
