I was walking with 2 of my kids (3 and 4). There was a hunk of cement that they were throwing around. I told them to stop and they didn't, several times. My son was the most recent throwing offender and I knelt down and told him how dangerous it was. At that time DD picked up the cement and threw it. So I yelled, "I just told your brother to stop and now you're throwing it?!?!" I yelled out of frustration and walked ahead of them so that I could have a min to calm down. I then knelt again infront of them both and appologized for yelling but that it was dangerous to throw rocks and other hard things. While I'm doing this a lady across the street yells at me that I shouldn't yell at my kids and that I need help. Sure I shouldn't yell at them and that's why I took a moment to calm down so that I wouldn't overeact again. Help, sure who couldn't use help, was she being helpful? No!
