I kept saying it’s what she has to put up with because lets face it, what Diva is having to put up with is an awful lot for anyone let alone a child. Her homework as suffered, she refused to do her last project, spent 6 weeks just doodling in her homework book, no matter how much I asked, told, demanded she did her homework, it was to no avail. At the end of my tether, fed up with the being talked to like a bit of muck at the bottom of my daughter’s shoe and believe me I didn’t take that lightly. I asked for help and suggestions at one of the parent meeting. A few suggestions were given to me just had to put them into place and tell Miss Diva she is doing the activities.
The first activity was Karate now this is something I didn’t think she would be interested in. After a few weeks she asked if she could have a Karate kit then a few weeks after that she went for her first grading and passed it. Wow, we have found something that she is interested in. Right next step after school clubs, well she tried art, cooking, gymnastics and dance but nothing seemed to pacify her for more than a few weeks her heart and soul weren’t in it.
Last month she had the opportunity to join Guides, I remember joining Guides at 10 and I absolutely loved it. It would be good if she liked Guides just as much. So tonight off she trots to her first ever meeting, she was sort of looking forward to it but was very non-committal about it. The time soon passed and wasn’t sure what to expect when we went to pick her up. Well she was roaring with laughter when we got there proper belly laughs. She came running out for a form for her to go to camp in the summer. I asked her if she wanted to go and she loved. loved, loved it.
Tonight was the first time in a very long time that I have seen Diva so happy, maybe we might have found her ideal activities.Hopefully now.my old Diva will return and this horrible monster disappear.
