I know i am a young mother and wife and that i chose this life i have and i love it but i am getting very angry at my husband and my 3 year old son and his little brother. Here is why on all
My husband works from 5am to 2pm at walmart and has been diagnosed with Anxiety. Sometimes he gets the anxity attacks and he gets sweats, upset stomach, and feels sick, He has gone to a counselr for it and i go with him and our kids. But i am doing everything and he barley helps me. I cook, clean, take care of the kids, shovel the snow so he has less to do when he gets home, i babysit other kids, and get kids from school, i even make time to meet with him on his lunch break in the morning. His mom is annoying and calls for dumb reasons half the time, and when i call her she don't want to talk to me, but when her son calls she will talk to him for an hr or longer, she also talks about his ex gfs and it makes me angrier and i talk to him about it and he doesn't tell her anything and when i talk to her about it she just ignores me or says she needs to go. but anyway my husband all he does is work at work, and then comes home sits on the computer and watches our show that i never get to watch cuz i am busy doing something, and as far as kids go he only does baths and kisses them good night, he never once got up in the middle of the night when one was sick, he never makes dr appt, and i always have to ask him to change our baby or help our 3 year old with his pants.
as far as my 3 year old son he is my wild child. I am constantly punishing him and feel bad for it. So i thought of a new way and it is talk to him and tell him what i expect of him and remind him through out the day, i thought it was working but its not. he is hitting, kicking, bitting, running away in parking lots, throws his food on the floor or all over the table, puts things on top of his brother. I am firm and consistent with him, i give him 3 warnings. The first warning is Haiden please stop doing what ur doing, the second is the same as the first, but with a twist of saying Haiden please stop u only have one more warning or ur going in timeout. The third is Haiden this is last warning next time i catch u doing or saying something u shouldn't be ur in time out for 3mins. the last time he pulls it he is in timeout for 3mins and a toy taken away for 3 days.
My baby 5months old, is learning bad things from his brother, he spits at me, half the time cries even after he is fed, changed, cuddled so i just go put him to bed where he is then sleeping.
what am i doing wrong with my kids and family? i love them but i am getting so stressed out.
