Just wondered if others suffered from burnout from their kid's trying to get them to do stuff all the time. I was just putting my daughter to bed, and she claimed she was too tired to say prayers and wanted me to do it for her. I have, on occasion, sympathized with her and did it. I try to be a nice loving parent, at times. Other times, when I'm really tired, my burnt out, calloused side shows thru, and I just tell her she either participates or I leave. She's done this behavior to me so many times in so many situations that I'm just weary of it. It's also worse too because she has a younger brother, who she wants to compete with because of the jealous rivalry. So, she wants to be even needier at times, which really repels me. Anyone else deal with this type of behavior? Any suggestions.
