A Long-Winded Temper Tantrum

I rarely have temper tantrums. Daddy and mummy are quite strict and stern in disciplining me. They will not tolerate nonsense such as unreasonable crankiness, leaving me no chance to express my frustrations and unhappiness through tantrums. Terrible 2s and Horrible 3s? I've never had the "privilege" to go through that because I know very well that tantrum = cane.

This morning, I woke up with severe Monday morning blues. Feeling extremely sluggish and moody, I had difficulty moving and responding to mummy's commands (asking me to drink my milk, brush my teeth, change into my uniform etc). Irritated by my unresponsiveness (I practically just ignored her), mummy shouted at me and lightly slapped me twice to fully wake me up.

We did not talk to each other the whole morning after that. Upon arrival at school, I suddenly clung on to her, cried and refused to let her go. Mummy left without turning back to smile and wave goodbye to me, like she usually did.

Little did she know that I actually cried for 4 hours, from 8.30am until 12.30pm, from the moment class started until class dismissed! Little did she know that I had my "battery" fully charged for crying! Later, when told what happened, mummy felt so bad and embarrassed that she quickly apologized to my teacher for making her endure the torture of my misbehaviour!

I was still crying when we reached home. Can you believe how crazy I was? I was given a stroke of the rotan and barred from watching tv, having snacks and playing with my toys as additional punishment. Having nothing left to do or play, I slept the whole afternoon away...

... and also slept all my blues away...

Despite my annoying crying-spell, I was given a Tinkerbell balloon (all my classmates got one, of different design each), which mummy thought I didn't deserve at all. But it did put a smile back on my face again.

  8. I see Chloe is quite mature, to have such long winded tantrum, surely have some story behind. Could check up something happen to her on last friday in school.
    Kasihan,cried for 4 hours, did she lose her voice?

  9. Smallkucing & Shenny's mommy: Actually nothing happened at school. She kept crying cos I scolded her in the morning. She got a big shock cos I haven't raised my voice at her like that in a long time. Maybe she expected me to sayang her back but I didn't, hence the 4-hour tantrum. I really had no idea that she was capable of doing this (being so long-winded)!

  21. whether she is in a good or bad mood, we as parents should let her start her day in a happy mood. so, got to be really patient as after all, she is only so young. she has been so good girl all the while and once in a while, let her be naughthy lor??? she needs more attention, that's why???? need hug hug kiss kiss and sayang sayang!!! Wish her everyday before leaving her at the school YOU ENJOY YOUR DAY AND HAVE A NICE DAY will do good. When can Chloe dance dance with Koo Mar again??

  23. Poor Chloe, she cried for so many hours..sure her eyes bengkak already!

    Anyway, sometimes I also angry with Sarah on certain matter till I choose to not talking to her for few minutes, but once she started showing pity face and apologized, then I gave in:-)
