We have had a crazy week here, with numerous interruptions. So much that it has been difficult to keep the boys focused on school, and equally difficult in keeping myself focused. The kids have a hard enough time with school and day to day life. Extra distractions just add fuel to the fire.Yesterday was the worst. So bad that it created meltdowns, including my own about 11pm last night. I got up this morning and decided to create some boundaries to gain control of the situation.
I’ve hooked up an answering machine to the main phone line in the house, and left a message on it that school is in session and we will return phone calls when we are available. All the phones will be turned off during our working hours. I’ve also made up some signs and posted on our doors to our house. I’m hoping this helps the situation.
