    I am in the opposite situation. My aide is the most calm patient individual. She has had a lot of experience with younger children and has a keen insight to their needs and has a way of dealing with tough situations very calm and patiently. Myself on the other hand I don't know if it is not having children of my own, but there are times I catch myself being too firm I don't want to say yelling but firmness or more firm than how my aide handles things. I think seeing how my aide models appropriate responses has helped me monitor my responses. Sometimes it gets so chaiotic with all the levels and expectations I put onto myself. Maybe I am harder on myself than I should be but patience is a skill I work on hard some days. We do sometimes have stressful jobs and I work hard everyday at being patient.
    I think too being up front and acknowledging that it is hard sometimes but that you are there to help her through this too. Good luck.
