Meltdown Not as Bad as in the Past

Kenzie had another meltdown yesterday and I have to say it wasn't as bad as it has been in the past. She did not cuss or hurt anyone. She just cried really hard, ranted and raved, and kicked a chair across the room. I think it was not as bad because of the nurtured heart approach and how we handle things now when they get yucky. I know it still sounds bad to others but trust me for us it was much better. The only thing I hated was when she kicked the chair it scared Addy and she cried. That was the first time Addyson reacted that way. And that made me sad! But we have to look at the positive and overall it was not to the scale it has been in the past. Maybe one day we will be rid of them completely.

  1. I am so glad her meltdown was better this time. Caroline's are not as awful as they once were. She used to do major damage to our house. Now she will just yell or cry or slam a door, but not try to hurt me or someone else. Caroline used to obsess about being martyred as a missionary overseas before she was on mood stabilizers.
