Unlike Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbs fame) I didnt have the option of threatening to run away to Alaska if forced to eat my vegetables. Even at that young age Id learnt that Australia was surrounded by water. If I was lucky I might have made it as far as Queensland, but what then?!
Your child or grandchild may be mad, angry, or sad. Do not squelch their feelings. If they are not allowed to have those feelings today, eventually, those feelings will surface. It might not manifest in the way you would find acceptable, so help them to deal with the feelings and to know that they are normal. We are allowed to have these feelings as long as we express them in the appropriate manner. Here is a good teaching time.
Regardless of your child's challenges and abilities - ALL children will benefit from learning to listen to the positive voices inside their heads and if they don't have many, we need to help them develop some. The more we help our children focus on positive self-talk the more it will minimize the self-blame and doubt that sprouts from paying too much attention to the negative.
