Tuesdays With Tyler: Where is My Caillou?

“Im just a kid who’s four, each day I learn so more, I’m Caillou…”  If you haven’t seen the show Caillou, it is centered around his wonderful family and wonderful life and is based out of Cananda.

I’ve never seen Caillou’s parents punish him or raise their voices to him, because they don’t need to.  Caillou doesn’t have temper tantrums, doesn’t whine and is happy and well-adjusted all of the time.  He eats everything his mother cooks for him.

I’ve never heard Caillou tell his parents, “I don’t love you any more, get out of my house”!  He doesn’t watch t.v., he is always playing outside.  I never heard him ask his parents for anything and he always goes to bed right on time with a smile on his face.

So, naturally, when Tyler became four, I expected him to turn into a Caillou-like type of child. I don’t know what happened, but Tyler is pretty much the same kid he was when he was three.

Did I do something wrong?  Or does this just happen to Canadian kids?

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
