I am a 23YO single mother of a 10 month old & a 2.5 YO. I've been feeling completely overwhelmed. I have no help with the kids. Their dad was abusive 2 me during my 2nd pregnancy & I haven't heard from him since I got the restraining order (child support can't even find him).
I just get so stressed out & I do things I never wanted 2 do as a parent. I yell @my son when he doesn't listen, and sometimes I get so frustrated that I tell him "I'm gonna whoop ur ass" (I never would), sometimes I let my daughter sit in her seat and cry while I'm trying to get other things done, sometimes I forget to change my sons diaper for like 5 hours, I know I overfeed baby but its the only thing th@ put 2 sleep the 5 times she wakes up, & the baby has fallen off the bed twice...I just don't know how 2 handle stress when I am the only one responsible for them 24/7. Some days I think they dont even have any fun with me, Im always in crisis mode....

I hate asking, but, since I already have 16 bumps on one of my questions....
