Kids getting the best of me...

Seriously, I wish someone would have told me a long time ago that the terrible 2’s aren't so terrible. Because the fierce 4’s and scary 7’s are WAY WORSE!!!

We've been having some issues with my daughters lately. The 4 year old, besides her all out tantrums on just about anything anytime she doesn’t get her way, or doesn’t like something I can handle those. Although the screaming, kicking, crying and yelling is just ANNOYING… She’s still small enough that I can pick her up, put her in her room and let her stay there till she figures out she’s not going to get her way.

My 7 year old however, it’s a different story. Being as I’m only 5’ nothing, my oldest is just about my height already (yea she’s tall). I have struggled with removing her from situations physically and I just can’t do it much longer. Yet her rebelliousness is going to be the end of me. We’re trying to nip this in the bud now, and this week after trying to run away from home (in the rain with no shoes on) and hitting me, she’s lost her 1st winter session of indoor soccer, and was not allowed to participate in a uniform free day at school this week.

So far, so good, but how do you handle them when they’re so out of control and trying to get the best of you? Anyone with older kids who’ve already gone through this care to share some advice with me? The stress these kids put me through some days, I tell ya… I’m thinking about vacations far far away, vacation rentals outer banks sounds like a great place to spend some time alone, but I just may never come back!!!

Let me know how the vacation turns out. lol. I totally understand where you are coming from. We have a blended family with 6 kids: 6,9,10,10,12 & 14. It can be a total challenge but when they come give me a hug or tell me they love me I remember that it's all worth it.
