I really lost it with my 19 month old tonight. I had been feeling cranky and irritable all day, and by bedtime, I was just DONE with her and everything else. I tried to get her dressed for bed, and she started kicking me and laughing! I started yelling at her to stop, and she thought it was funny and kept laughing. I was THIS CLOSE to smacking her, but I am commited to raising her without corporal punishment, so I hit the bed instead. She just kept laughing and kicking. I gave up, got her dressed as quickly as possible and put her to bed.
How do you keep from losing your cool with your kids? I'm usually able to handle her, but I was just not feeling good today...really tired and such.
