A friend invited me to the theatre. Usually I would talk myself out of it. Too expensive, I need to do bedtime, what if one of the kids gets sick!Yet this week was the "Avoiding Angry Outbursts" bootcamp. Day 5 "Me Time". So I knew it was time to put me first.
I find if I react to my child's anger, it makes it worse. Yet when I am tired and not had a break. I get less patient and less able to deal with her anger.This week was also half-term. The holidays are always challenging. So I agreed to go to the theatre. Giving me a well deserved treat to end the week.
