Default Re: Unreasonable expectations for CRAZY 6 year old?

Oh to Mudpies:

About teaching her to handle her emotions. Um...Well I try to reason her through it, basically that HER reasons don't make any I'm probably wrong... I'm trying to learn to validate her feelings. Which can be hard when she is so unreasonable. i.e. That she didn't get a present from grandparents on her SISTER'S birthday, and can't bring herself to let it go. She responds to anything not going her way as if she has been suffered a terrible *injustice,* which is hard to empathize with when you feel so accused. She frequently "corrects" her dad and I and just doesn't *get* that that isn't appropriate, no matter how many times we tell her.
