Half His Age
Sometimes I forget that when there are transitions, like today when Hubby went back to work after a week long vacation, I have to change my expectations of my kids' abilities. I remember our therapist telling me that I need to halve my kids' chronological age to get their emotional age. It has helped me to lower my frustration level when they act much younger than they look. A thirteen year old boy is perfectly capable of reheating his own lunch, but a six year old boy sometimes needs his mommy to do it for him.
