When it all goes south…Most know what this mean. This is the time we possibly dread, the times we don’t look forward to as this could be the one moment that could change everything.
When it all goes south for me includes many things, but usually centers around work situations and events. And yes I mean events as in a total preteen or adolescent meltdown.
I am sure you mothers and fathers out there have experienced them before and know exactly what I am talking about. Now imagine this child has mental illnesses, going through chemical withdrawals, behavioral issues and educational deficiencies. Yes, these explain most of my boys here at work.
All it takes is one imperfect moment for it all to go south. A temper tantrum, an unjust action, an untrue insult, or even a disproportionate slight. All it takes it one little thing to make the whole day be ruined, for me for them, for the rest of the house.
