Max and I battled last night and I can't believe what happened. So we got home and went running ( him in the running stroller ), well he was already in Whine mode but we went for it anyway.. he doesn't stop talking about wanting to go to the park, now anytime we've run, we run first THEN he gets to go to the park but it was late and dad was running late from work so today I said lets just run buddy and then we'll go to the park tomorrow, he wasn't ok with that and started on about how he never gets to go to the park, all he wants to do is go to the park, so I asked him to stop whining please, Max, stop now. Max, enough now, you get to go to the park a lot. Finally I turned the running stroller around because I was upset at this point. then he got upset because I turned it around and he knew I was mad, then he started crying which upset us BOTH more, i tried to ignore it which I'm never good at because it gets on my nerves so bad.. we FINALLY get home and at this time I am yelling and he's crying full force at this point, time out time, then he lost toys for not stopping crying I sent him in his room because I was only getting more mad listening to it.. I took a mommy time out and tried to breath out my anger - I walk in his room while he's still crying and he's standing in his window frame saying "how do I get out of here? I need to get out of here" I grabbed him and just started crying and hugging him telling him never do that, don't ever do that and I just am in shock... it scared me SO much I don't even know what to do now...
Ok- I have to totally get a grip on my frustration levels lately and I feel terrible about this.. I don't even know what to think. He already has been diagnosed with Anxiety through ECI so I am thinking he had a mini anxiety attack and now I don't know what to do - I'm scared to yell at him, I am scared that I am getting SO frustrated lately, I'm scared and can't stop picturing him standing in his window trying to get out :(
What am I supposed to do? I am planning on taking a second course with the parenting class I took last year because CLEALY I'm not doing well... but now I'm scared to even get upset... I am completely embarressed and upset but deserve any bashing I get so I am not using the Anon...
