  • I LOVE my kids.... adore them with every bit in me...BUT..I feel you. I feel that way a bit more than sometimes I think I should. I try to be patient and understanding, but sometimes it is hard. So many people will tell others.. you should not have to "try" to be a good parent (trust me I know...). But, who ever says that they don't get mad or go overboard sometime is lying.. Every mom feels it, some just handle it a bit better. I read ALOT of self help books about, controlling anger (I really don't have a true anger problem but it is good to keep yourself in check), being more understanding and reasonable, how to handle different emotions etc... There is much you can do to help yourself..:) I hoped I helped you feel less alone in this. :)

  • you have to try to remember it's not their fault you feel like that, it's stressful having 2 kids so i can't imagine having 4...i sometimes get really frustrated with my 3 y/o dd but i try to take it easy on her b/c she's jsut a child... hang in there mama it'll get better

  • Bless your heart. They are ONLY at adolescent stage? Wait for the teen years! Yes it's normal to feel overwhelmed and irritated and even angry. Pick your battles. Start letting the oldest make his own decisions and even allow him to help you with the others. Sharing Responsibility will help you both make it through the next few years.
