had a difficult day today - back from a week's holiday and j hasn't dealt with the transition very well (husband back at work so back to a normal week). Swimming lesson went well this morning but lots of growling and frustrated behaviour this afternoon. He had a meltdown leaving a friend's house and I got scratched in the face and kicked trying to put him in the car! Think i did the right thing, staying calm, talking to him once he'd calmed down a bit....still felt a bit like a punching bag though!
Well done ... staying calm when you're being attacked is so difficult but if you lose your temper and shout back it's likely to make things worse.
