Tips from the Vance County Parenting Task Force
Although you love your child, there will be times when her behavior exasperates you. Remember, she will never be this age again and, this too will pass.
Let her know how you feel when she upsets you. But try to keep your sense of humor and perspective.
Be patient when she attempts to do things for herself. She may err at first, but she’ll learn with practice. Responsibility for oneself takes practice and lots of room for mistakes before it’s mastered.
