Linds' Terrible Day

Well yes, yesterday was a day from hell..I don't know how many of you have someone in your life that screams and has temper tantrums. If you do, I'm sorry and I feel very sympathetic towards you.

Yesterday morning was the beginning of a terrible day. Noone should ever use temper tantrums to try to get their way. Don't they realise that temper tantrums don't do anything towards meeting their goals??? A temper tantrum does not work in their favor. Instead it turns people against them. Temper tantrums make the person having it more angry. Temper tantrums hurt other people, and in the end, those people are not going to do what is wanted.

They will do whatever they want...

My boy was supposed to go to school yesterday. He said he had to be there by 10 am. The school phoned and said he had to get in there to finish an assignment.. If I could have, I would have sweet talked him into going when he was supposed to. I was not given that chance, because someone had a temper tantrum and wouldn't stop. In the end, my boy's aide sweet talked him into finishing the assignment. It was almost not done at all because he was so angry at the person that had been yelling at him. The temper tantrum wrecked my entire family's day.

Then last night, the temper tantrum person was still yelling at 3 in the morning. He got up and started making our lives miserable all over again. My boy was totally logical and knew what to say, but the temper tantrum person would not stop. I finally had to threaten to phone the police in a no nonsense way.

Temper tantrums undo all the good the person may have done in the past. Temper tantrums turn other's against you. Temper tantrums are totally useless to you.. They don't achieve your goals and they actually work against your goals. It's much better to be calm, peaceful, talking in a quiet voice, to get what you want, and not just for the first few minutes either...It's much better to throw rocks at a pole, than to yell at someone else. It's much better to use love and caring to persuade someone to your side of the problem.

Tempertantrums put your brain in reverse..Instead of going forward with your goals, they ruin all your efforts so far.

Yes, I'm upset..I'll calm down and get on with my life..It's sunny out and I refuse to let this person ruin my life or my family's life.
