Sometimes I wonder why I bother. Today I picked Lil'man up early from daycare in order to go on a play date at the park. He showed his little rear.
He cannot handle the change in routine. The new environment, and people cause him to become overstimulated. Which in turn causes him to act out.
He needs the experiences, but sometimes it isnt worth the stress. I was near tears at the park today, because of how he was acting. People don't get it, he looks totally normal. I just look like a bad Mother who has no control over her kid.
The first time he hit, I took it in stride, the second, third and fourth time he acted out, I wanted to crawl under a rock.
Why does a trip to the park have to be so freaking stressful? Why do I have to run behind a 4 yr old, making sure he isnt spitting, hitting, or being nasty to people.
He is so well behaved at home when its just the three of us.
