Last night Sam couldn’t sleep; this morning he fell asleep sitting up on the couch, then went back to bed and slept until 1 pm.

When Sam and I picked Ella up from school, she said she had had a great day; when we suggested McDonald’s Playplace, she was thrilled. But when it was time to go, she had a huge fit and climbed into the farthest corner of the play structure and refused to come down. I had to climb up there, “escort” her down, put on her shoes, etc., all while she was in full melt-down mode.

Sam was a jewel and tried everything he could think of to persuade/bribe her into compliance but with no success. In the car she refused to wear her seat belt over her shoulder, and once home would not get out of the car.

My Parenting Manual needs an addendum. Can I please download that as a pdf?
