Earlier today, my DD (18 months) was just irritating me because she wouldn't go to sleep. I was tired and hungry..I just had jaw surgery so I'm wired shut. My face is swollen and sore and she kept smacking my face thinking it was a game. I got irritated and yelled at her and smacked her hand. I felt sooo terrible that I started crying too :( I really REALLY hate yelling at my little baby girl. I know that it is not helping her self esteem and I really don't want her to be scared of me. What do I do? I want to do other things to help her...not yell at her. It just really broke my heart today to smack her hand and see her cry like that. I like yelled in her face. :( *tears*Answer Question

Don't worry, it sounds like you are just having a really rough time right now. Don't beat yourself up over a bad day. Yes, you can be sorry for smacking her hand but its not like you smacked her in the face. She needs to learn that she can't hit people just give her lots of hugs and kisses and tell her your sorry and that you love her and next time she does slap you grab her hand and put it in her lap and tell her no! Redirect her focus on something else.
