Sometimes it seems my 7 1/2 yo dd does drama, just to do drama. Even if she is going to lose out on something she really wants.
Example:We have gotten her a loft bed that she wants set up in her bedroom. Over the weekend, her job was to help Dad sweep his shop and then he would set up her bed. I went to the store to get something. She didn't want to go with me. I come home and she's weeping "Dad is punishing meeeeeeee.............. He's making me sweep the whole shop (it's not that big.) He was making me wear the respirator and it was choking me so I threw it down and broke it. Now he's punishing me and won't set up my bed.....eeeeeeever!!!!!!"
So I get husbands side. This is the respirator she has worn in the past with no problem. He thought he was being nice not having her breathe the dust.
