You are in a dilemma, what do you do, where do you go, who would believe you? Your child just…peeped in the corner, hid food in your couch, went outside in the snow without a coat, ate 2 lunches at school after saying you did not feed him, yelled at you because you took her out to eat, was up wondering through the house during the night… and the list goes on. These are not stories you share with the “soccer” moms at a game. Your husband (sister, mom, neighbor) is tired of hearing you complain. Your friends avoid you.
You have no answers! It seems as if you child is intentionally trying to drive you crazy.
