V works for me because I was actually going to write about what a villain I am sometimes to my daughter. Okay, I was originally going to use another word that doesn't start with a V, but V works!
One of the issues my daughter with Asperger's has is an inability to control her emotions. She can fly into tantrums over nothing and oftentimes with very little warning. This has been getting better over the past year, thank goodness. However, lately she started doing something new. She sometimes will yell at me over minor things or blame me for things that don't go her way. For example, today she lost a little toy she had at school and immediately started getting cross with me. In her mind, I was at fault since I was carrying her backpack for her when she noticed it wasn't in the side pocket anymore. So here I was, thinking I was being nice for carrying her backpack, and she's treating me like a villain and blaming me for something she did.
I've been working with her to remain calm, use her words politely, and not blame me for things that don't go her way! She is 6 going on 12. I know I've stated this before, but I'm REALLY not looking forward to the teenage years.
