Last week I had the most challenging child to paint ever. I was at my hometown's fair and a child of about 8 years old came up wanting a butterfly mask. I knew from the start it was going to be a challenge because this child screamed everything she said. I don't mean she was just a little loud, she was screaming at the top of her lungs like someone was killing her. Well, i sat her in my chair and i asked her to close her eyes so i could sponge over her eyelids. The moment I touched the eyelid she opened her eyes and screamed because she now had paint in her eye. I wiped her eye clean and told her again to keep her eyes closed, but she opened them yet again when i touched her. So, after the third time I decided to just go around her eyes. This is when she began to yell at me that i wasn't doing it right. About five times while i was painting her she jumped up, without warning, to look at the mirror and then at the picture on my sign after which she would scream at me again that I wasnt doing it right. I will say it didn't look the best but everytime i touched her she would jerk her head away and continually wipe her face. Finally i got the painting done (though i will admit it didnt look the best) and i got out my liquid bling. When she saw it she began to scream that I was going to poke her with a needle. I tried to explain to her that it wasn't a needle but just a squeeze bottle but she couldn't be convinced, so, I just got out a poof bottle of loose glitter. I put a little on her and after looking in the mirror she simply yelled "MORE!" ....seriously. I added more and she yelled again "MORE" I told her I had put on enough and she said I should just use the whole bottle. I explained i couldn't do that. Finally, she left my booth and I in a way I felt bad about taking any money for the job because it did not look good, but then again it was the hardest i had worked all day. There is a strong chance that I will encounter this child again because she is from my home town and I try to do a lot of events here. What would you do in this situation? Has anyone else had a child act this badly? I'm just at a loss.
