Temper Tantrum during exchange - suggestions?
      08/31/07 09:45 AM

When SD7 comes over 50% of the time there is a screaming tantrum involved. BM has to take her to the door, and almost force her into dadís house. BM is frustrated with her, DH doesnít put up with it and he sends her to her room until she is finished crying, then she can come downstairs. Within 3-5 minutes, she is downstairs and as happy as can be, like nothing ever happened.

I will tell you she is a 100% mamaís girl. The 2 boys (5, 3) rarely give us trouble, and I am concerned that they are seeing her act this way and think itís OK. To me, it is unacceptable that a 7 year old would throw this type of fit.

DH has asked her why she is so upset and her answer is always ĎI want to stay with mommyí. Only 2 occasions in the past has she been allowed to stay with BM, and that was because she was sick and DH and BM agreed that was best. So, I donít think itís a situation where she thinks she can get her way.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to deal with this? Itís not like she doesnít have fun at our house. Sheís got friends in the neighborhood, we play games, I know she enjoys her time at her dads. But, if she had her way, she would always be with mom. Should DH take her to a counselor? Any books you can suggest with advice? Anything?
