My late husband always got our 2 kid's (girl& boy) to listen , they would never listen to me. It took me a long time to admit that I was one of those mom's that never disciplined because I would feel guilty and give in all the time and wanted to be friends. But it is true that you can't be best friends with your kid's . I am having a had time getting them to listen to anything I say and our routine is out the window. I had depression/anxiety before my husband passed. Now it is even worse!! I make breakfast, get them to school, dinner , baths & bed. Some activities on the weekends. They also have a huge yard and neighborhood with Lot's of friends. But I am so depressed I am just trying to get through each day. I know I need to be on more of routine for them to listen I know all of that stuff. But I can't seem to do it. I feel terrible and this depression is taking away the fun and structure in our house. Any suggestions?? Please help!! Also we have an in home therapist 2X a week, but I still feel lost.Answer Question
