If the last three hours have taught me anything, it’s that this process is going to take awhile.
My son’s preschool had been doing something cool with my son through the year. When they would take him to the bathroom to change his diaper, they would sit him on the toilet for about 10 seconds.
The school sent him home with the PECS cards that they use to walk him through the whole process.
Today is the day we start at home.
My son feels the change in the routine. He’s been irritable all morning. He’s also refusing to eat breakfast.
Like all things, it will be a process. Within time he will get used to the change. Until then, it’s time for what I call, “gorilla parenting.”
