It is with a heavy and anxious heart that I write this post.
It may be hard for you to believe but that beautiful little girl of mine, the little girl who, quite literally, is my someone to bless me whenever I sneeze; the little girl who will sing herself to sleep and to school; the little girl who says 'lovu' down the telephone and always says 'alllright mummy' whenever I drop something (which is often) is ....
in danger of becoming a brat.
There I said it.
At nursery she has taken to smacking children who come near. Well that may be an exasperation, but her jealousy seems to know no bounds.
Now I know that jealousy stems from insecurity, but what I don't know is what to do about it?
Please don't get me wrong, she can be kind and there are days at nursery where she spends the day wiping noses and kissing upset children better.
But, these days are outnumbered by those where she is demanding, hardwork and out of control.
I love my daughter, PD loves his daughter, most people love her. But how long will that last?
