Someone had asked how we are hoping to treat Nia's anemia....Well, Black Strap Molasses is a natural and easily absorbed way to get Iron. However, it's not so yummy on it's own. Nia does not enjoy taking her vitamins, and if she continues to make a big deal about it then we may have to resort to putting PolyVisol (liquid) in milk/water. We've tried to convince her that the vitamins really are her best tasting choice.
It's been another hard day with Nia. Whenever I try to have a conversation with her about her behavior, she goes silent, looks in the distance, and pouts. It really tries my patience. I'm just trying to have a conversation with her, communicate lovingly to her, and then she has to go and respond in a &*(%*^@#* way. I took computer and TV away today until she could show me a better attitude. Needless to say, she didn't get much screen time today, which is actually a good thing. I'm still working on the Unplugged thing.
