my mother was a grouchy couch potato. i assume she was probably depressed. she was a bit harsh with discipline. belts, shoes, spatulas on our bare butts...that type thing. she even slammed us into the wall or slapped us sometimes. i am a mother to two beautiful boys one almost 3 and one 5 months. i find myself having to fight with my mother. i don't agree with her parenting choices, and i don't spank my kids. i try to be active and part of what interests them. i do find that i have to struggle to be nice. when my preschooler acts out, i have to talk myself through the inccident and make sure the words comming out of my mouth are kind. it is a struggle some days. any advice on how to be more kind and peaceful? does anyone here relate to my story?Answer Question
