How do you express sadness over events that happened in an appropiate way?
I do not know myself-My little man needs a lot of communication skills to learn and yet unless I learn them myself first, he will not get there himself.
So today I struggle. Struggle to understand why the sadness I felt this morning over Greg hurtng myself and Maya. The sadness of expressing his own anger in aggression, was expressed by myself as anger and aggression. Can you see a pattern?
Yeah I am the one who is teaching him the bad ways while advocating he shouldn’t do it! Truthfully I forgive myself for this transgression and am happy to know that I am aware of it. BUT how do I change it to non violent action and positive teaching?
-Sigh- I have no idea. With Greg being in school, I haven’t had a lot of episodes like this. Today being a holiday we woke up all in arms and getting at each other. It saddened me because I do not want his days at home to be full of anger and resentment and aggression.
I will sit with this question today, ask for guidance and let it churn in my head. An answer will surely come forth.
