Another emotional Tuesday.


Tuesdays are starting to become my most dreaded day of the week. Every baby group session for the last month? (Maybe more) we’ve had a incident where pops has tried to hurt another child.

It’s getting too much.

After a few near misses I’d had enough and decided to leave, the girls could tell I was upset and tried to reassure me it was normal and not to get upset over it… that instantly made me burst into tears!  i hate crying in front of people

It’s so hard being the parent of a child that does things like this because you know 90% of the time they’re lovely and you don’t want that 10% to be a reason for them to be excluded or feared.

I feel like a failure. I feel like something i do or have done has made her like this and I feel overwhelmed and unsure how to stop it. I wish so much I had a mother I could ask for support and help.

Until the next post,
Are and Pops.

  1. My youngest has gone through that phase (I hope it’s past tense anyway but who knows…). He seemed to see it as a science experiment half the time – how hard do I have to push to knock them over and other times it was the only solution he could come up with. I think it’s common but I know exactly what you mean, I was mortified. But don’t be, most mums get it I think!


  2. I know a few toddlers who are like that – scraping and biting. They all grew out of it after a few months.
    At creche my eldest got bitten a few times and then that child grew out of biting and my son grew into it, thankfully short-lived.
    Try not to worry. If you give the child too much attention after the incident, they could see that as a positive thing – I hit, mummy spends time with me, even if only to reprimand.
