THAT Sonny, Will, Paul, Maggie, Victor -EVERYONE should've sat down immediately with Ari that day and ALL of them tell Ari that it was THEIR fault -- NOT Gabi's - that they didn't tell her the truth -- that it was NOT her mommy's fault that she couldn't come home the day they said she would.
this "tail wagging the dog" routine is sickening! No 4 yr old holds a grudge more than 2 minutes---
Yeah, when a parent allows a child to get away with their temper tantrums, the child will suffer in the long run. This all should have been handled on the first day, Ari should have gone home with Gabi, thrown her little temper tantrum and been done with it. But no, Gabi wanted everybody and their mother to feel sorry for her because her child HATED her. I wonder what all the other parents were really thinking, like, "you sure you can't handle/raise a 4 yr old child?" How long did Gabi let this ordeal go on, weeks now?
