it's been a half an hour and it's been basically nonstop tantrums and timeouts. it's hard to know whether i've been pushing too hard and that's a problem, or if i've been pushing legitimately and she's protesting but ultimately will agree. sort of like the month when i decided she'd have to get her own bowl and spoon when she was 4 yrs old and the tantrums were unbelievable but ultimately she did it and it's not an argument anymore. growing pains.
i must say that i prefer (for myself) doing less work because the days are more chilled and pleasant. for all of us. otoh, she learns less. what is my goal here, anyway??
