Are you a mom?
If so, you can ask real moms your parenting questions and get answers in minutes!
Let me start and say I love my kids with all my heart. I just feel like I am drowning in my life and noone is throwing me a life jacket.
My daughter is 8 going on 28, she is strong willed and always gives me a hard time about everything..tonight it was a fit because she is not going to a birthday party. My 6 year old son is usually pretty good he can just be very annoying at times and my 3 year old son is a terror when his brother and sister are around.He is pretty good all day at home with me but just about as soon as I pick the kids up from school and we get home he yells,screams, scratches, etc...
I am a stay at home mom with very little structured support from my husband, no adult communication. I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle..I just want to curl up and cry!!
My kids are not constantly bad, I just wish I had a outlet, something I could do to get away even if it was once a week, besides grocery shopping..lol.
Are any of you moms feeling the same way as me? What do you do to try to keep your sanity? I just hate when I get to the point of physco mom..yelling and screaming because I can't take it anymore, I don't want to be that mom. I'm just at the end of my rope. Some days I want to put my youngest in daycare and get some crappy job just to get away and that is awful to say but I just don't feel loved or appreciated at all, it's like I can never do anything right or good enough.May be I'm just over emotional tonight and needed to get it out..thanks for listening.
P.S..I'll take any advice you can give..lol

I definitely know how you feel, and I only have one child. After 20 yrs of working, I also became a SAHM six years ago when my son was born. What a shock! With little support from my husband, plus having lost touch with all my friends, and no family around the isolation left me depressed, withdrawn, and very irritable, added to that my son has special needs and requires extra specialized care, therefore daycare was not an option. I hate to admit it, but thank God for full day kindergarten, it's saved my sanity-literally, now I do lots of volunteer work and love it. It's not easy, but do what you can to find an interest or hobby completely away from the house, husband, and kids. It's not selfish to take care of Mom first, otherwise Mom can't take care of everyone else. You'll be happier and so will the rest of the family. Remember the old saying "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy" Good Luck!
