My daughters both have their days where they LOVE their homework assignment -- And then there's those days where the sound of nails on chalk board sound better than my daughter's screams and excesses! Kids are going to be kids no matter what we do or how we raise them. I'm so glad I learned the above tricks and have children's self-help books to help my daughters more understand what their feelings mean and how to react to them.
