She should be taking the time to do what is necessary to develop the patience to deal with her child well or ill.

This really does sound like the mom that I had, but this mom did marthons at the mall, so she needed full time care for both of her children from 6am to 7:30pm daily.

I would be telling this mom to get a nice jogger and learn to be a mom.
Yes you are correct, patience is required, but where I see she is really lacking is in boundaries and consistency. She does what is easiest for the moment, not what is best for the child.

I did send her the email. Will see if she terms. I am confident she will.
