  • I would think she probably feels out of control in her life. Is maybe overwhelmed with housework, kids, a job, finances. No excuse..but I find that I am a better parent when I have aschedule, routine and Im prepared for the next day. My dd goes to bed at the same time and I have some time to be alone and think about the next day. I never have everything done by any means, I know what I have to do each day and atleast dont have to back track to get stuff done. I have a grocery list on microwave, menu planning weekly, look at planner every night for next day....

  • hahaha yea im spying.

    she doesnt have a schedule..i mean she does to an extent.....but i know her and i know one big issue she housework. she does not get help with the house and it seems for every two things she does, she is getting frustrated because the kid and husband are behind her making 5 more things messy. maybe a cleaning schedule would help her.

  • My SIL has a folder where each child has monday chores and tuesday chores...they get sundays off. So 2 chores/per kid each day. they are in addietion to putting clothes in hamper and other taking care of yourself things. some include sweeping back porch, pick up sticks, vacuum living room hallway. the kids earn a couple bucks each week and everyone is on the same page. It is very frustrating when youfeel you are fighting your own family and everyone is working against you. When everyone pitches in then evryone can have fun together too. Takes awhile to get established, but the parents need a game plan.

  • She may have a disorder like bi-polar or something similar that when she gets her buttons pushed she can't control her anger. She may need counseling if it's too bad.
