I just let it be. They can be supportive or not, their choice. They aren’t the ones dealing with the day to day so their loss if they choose not to care. I had a lady just the other day say (in reference to my daughters melt down) “that what we call time for a nap!” She is six by the way and hasn’t napped since she was two. What it really is, is a need for heavy work and out of a noisy environment. She didn’t want to learn so I just let her think it was nap time. It’s hard not to want to defend our kids but really it isn’t a battle we have to fight, most of the time, in my opinion.
