DD was grumpy during drop-off this a.m. She will be going to bed earlier tonight. Occasionally, she will act out and not want me to leave. However, this a.m, she smacked me across the face in front of several teachers, another parent and children. Immediately, we practiced time-out and I explained why her behavior was wrong. I was slightly embarrassed but it wasn't until we returned from time-out and the grown-ups were still talking about it and DD threw another tantrum crying on the floor that I realized it's going to be a tough day for me too.
