  • Oh sure.

    I agree with you that contention is "of the devil."

    But I think every mom has their moments when they just need to make sure their kids are in a safe place and then give themselves a time-out in another room to cool down.

  • To err is human... and so is being frustrated with your kids. The difference is how you choose deal with it. Mommy time outs work too.

  • "Patience is a virtue, children are a blessing"
    repeat at least 20 times, until you're cooled down enough that you actually believe it.
    I think we've all been there.

  • Always remember that we're not supposed to say or do anything in anger. So just relax and try and take a second to regroup. I know it's hard. I personally think that i gave birth to one of the most challenging kids i've ever even heard of. Hang in there!

  • Yes most of us have been there. I know with my boys I have. My priest gave me some great advice. When I feel them pushing my buttons getting ready to explode. Put on the silliest music I can find and just start singing and dancing with them. It helps so much. Gets out their energy and puts us all in a happier mood. It evens works with DH. But with him I put on tango music and we do the most rediculous tango. Joyous laughter and love keeps the evil one at bay.
