I've never liked reprimanding Bennett, even when he does something that he's not supposed to.
Last nite proved the hardest time I've had to date.
We were shopping & he picked out a Lego kit he wanted, I gave in cause I said no to so many other things. It was late & he was getting tired (aka cranky). I made one last stop & was looking at something when he looked up at me & said "daddy?? I want to walk." It took every ounce of willpower not to start crying in the store. I just said to him "I know buddy, me too".
Then just as quickly something caught his attention & he forgot about it. I didn't & haven't stopped thinking about it since. Then as we were about to checkout he threw his Legos on the ground. So now I have to go into "mean dad" mode & tell him he's not getting them because he threw them, we've been having an issue w/ him throwing.
I know it's part of parenting, but it sucks especially after your disabled child asks for something they may not get.
I know there's no manual for parents, but sure wish there was.
