For the second time today, I found myself fighting with a kid who I was trying to help!!
Why do they do that???
I drop what I am doing, give them all my attention, and they get mad at me.
I do not get it!
They ask for my advice, then argue with me when I give it.
They ask for my help, then criticize me for not helping the way they wanted.
They whine; they cry; they scream; they yell.
You know what? In the end, I am whining, crying, screaming and yelling too!
I shout at them: "I am done helping you."
Then I keep helping them anyway .
(Yeah, yeah, I know that is inconsistent and sends mixed messages. Tell me something I don't already know!)
I do not want to leave them with their problems. I want to help them find a solution.
I want to fix everything.
Most of the time, I do a pretty good job.
So, why do they make it so hard???
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
