Oh the joys of spirited kids hey. I used to read the padded cell from my haughty place of having well behaved kids. Then came dd2 and my sanity and haughtiness went out the window.
I just hope ds2 is like the older two. lol. not sure if I can handle two with spirit.
I am on my phone so will reply when it is a bit easier to type but maybe I should cut and paste what you wrote and replace ds with dd and that would be me... Great idea for a thread!!
I have one very spirited toddler!! She has been GO GO GO since she crawled at 5 months!!
Everyone I know has "normal" children.
Mind you I have seen a dramatic change (no tantrums) since cutting out sugar and preservatives.
She still never listens and runs around like a crazy person but no melt downs.
What is the definition of "spirited"?
Not sure if this is what I have or not.
Where did this term come from?
Can I join? I have a spirited 8 yo who has always been a challenge. In fact, so much so she on on the waiting list to see a ped, as Im wondering if there might be something else going on. She is impulsive, loud, active, *ews everything (any cures as even her teacher has noticed that), very bright but lack socially and is also stubron. I have just started reading "raising your spirited child" which is just like her.
Good to know I am not alone.
i have 2!
i define it more as intense.
not all spirited kids are hyper.
