In my recent experiences with Concord, he has never thrown a tantrum or even cried. I am shocked and having a difficult time picturing this type of behavior from my sweet young nephew. Hope to see you all soon!! ;-)


Beth, You are parenting. If only everyone was given the opportunity to learn this lesson at concords age. We might not have all the adult problems of being lazy, letting parents support you into adulthood, feeling entitled. I think living through the tantrums is harder for the teacher than the learner.
It's so much more peaceful, if only in the moment, to give in and quiet the screaming. The tantrums, in adulthood are so much harder to live with. You are a great mother. (and wife) I can only hope I did as well with my kids. I suppose you might have some personal insight into that, seeing that you are married to one I raised.

Mom? What do you mean you HOPE you did as well with your kids?? I think we are pretty awesome. Anyway...Mona, I'm sorry. I give Is everything he wants. He does not learn these lessons from me. I may be making it harder for you. I apologize. I can't help it though. I just love him so much.
