Parenting children with attachment issues is a whole different kind of parenting. Yes, you must hold them accountable, but in order to safely go through the day, sometimes concessions are made. It's been a long week and Mark and I both feel as if we're walking the edge too - the edge of our own temper tantrum.
Next weekend is our anniversary and boy could we have used some time away, but that is not to be. Hopefully, next week will be calmer - hope does spring eternal, but frankly tonight, we're just very weary. Perhaps tomorrow we will all take a big step away from the edge - that would sure be nice.
