Hi, I usually post about my daughter, but wondered what are peoples best coping strategies for those moments when you have got really stressed?!!
Moment one: yesterday! I drove to a shopping centre about 30 mins away with my son who had a snow day and my youngest. Whilst we were there and had just booked youngest in for a half hour soft play, phone goes, my daughter's school, she's had three big accidents by lunch time and could they have more clothes! So we took little one out of soft play and drove back!
Moment two: today. I pick up daughter from school at end of day. She's only been changed once so not so bad, but she was very wet. I could tell by her body language! It was on her tights and pants but not through, but a big patch. So I take her back in and change her ( which daughter isn't happy about!!) then I go back out and playground empty and other kids and parents all gone, and I just feel like 'why is it my daughter like this and other kids aren't!'
Anyway. I got upset both of those times. It's getting to me more now she's 5 and no better than a toddler!
What are people's best strategies when you get really upset. For you I mean, we are hopefully gonna get a referral eventually etc, doctor is now not sure about paediatrician or urology ( we want the second). But for you as parents, what do you do when you're at your wits end?
I will start with ...... think about all the things my daughter is amazing at, there are many! She's loving reading and writing and she's good at physical stuff to, doing well swimming, great at making friends, eats anything! Not saying I think like this at the time! But when I've calmed down!!!!
