Lately it seems as if my kids are just doing anything possible to drive me nuts! I want to scream and have feelings of actually wanting to hit them! I want to just spank them so hard they don't stop crying for an hour! I feel like a child beater and I haven't even done it!
Oh my God I feel like such a bad parent but I am just at my wits end with my girls!
They are 4 1/2 and 3. Lately (past month or more) they have been tearing up stuff, stepping on their toys, coloring on the walls, yelling, screaming, fighting, crying... CRYing... CRYING!
I have taken away all the crayons, took toys to Goodwill, put them in time outs, etc.
I don't know what else to do to make them mind and I don't know how to get over these feelings of literally wanting to almost beat my kids lately. I was abused as a kid so these feelings scare the hell out of me!
I never ask anon, but I'm ashamed of my feelings right now. :(
