BeAGoodMom heard had to listen to some mom really yelling at her 5 year old kid at another kid’s birthday party today. The kid was probably wound up with all the sugar and party excitement and was probably being a bit of a butt.
Seriously, though, who doesn’t expect a little of that at a party for 2 to 5 year olds. If things get out of control, calmly tell the kid that they need to calm down or you are leaving. If things don’t calm down, leave.
But don’t spend a bunch of time screaming at your kid at a party.
If you are the kind of person that does that kind of thing, don’t come crying to me when your boss rides you a little harder than you like when you don’t do something exactly right at work.
