  • Thank gawd I am not alone!!!! I feel like I am going nuts sometimes and just break down and cry after yelling at my toddler. Please, please moms answer this question for both of us.

  • I get mad at my daughter a lot too. Sometimes I yell so much and I know I am upsetting her but I just can't stop.

    I started going to a counselor for it . . . They taught me to put myself in her shoes and to think about the reciponcations before I speak.

    I ahev been doing good, last thing I want to do is hurt her for life by screaming at her too much.

  • Here are a few things that I do when I'm having a stressful day: Take a deep breath (probably more than one!), have "quiet time" and instead of yelling, whisper. Seariously, whisper, they will more likely pay attention to you and not be afraid of your yelling. Try it!
