oh, does it feel like they hate me tremendously. they are 5,5,and 3. i feel like a complete piece of shit mom and its really getting to me. two of them have been throwing fits all day, one of them (5) acted out when i took him to school so bad that i couldnt even drop him off; i took him home and he spent the next few hours in his room by himself. dd(3) flips out crying and screaming over little things all day and the same 5 year old who threw a fit at school and didnt earn an ice cream this afternoon ripped up his mothers day card he made for me at school the day before.

Those are difficult ages, did something change in the house that they may be upset? My DD is 6 and she is constantly having fits, she says various things that make me sad, but it's a fact of life with kids. Don't take it personally, when they act up just ignore them, it is extremely hard believe me I know, I have had to leave my daughter at school screaming, if you react they will just keep it up. They don't hate you, they are mad and can't fully understand their emotions and they don't know how to express themselves. We are always here for you to vent. (((hugs)))

Kids go threw stages. It's too bad they are all going through a bad at once. Maybe tomorrow will be better. It does sound like it's just a bad day and they will get over it. Good Luck to you

The reason he threw a fit at school was because first he demanded i buy him ice cream (they sell it there every friday) and I said excuse me? you don't talk to me like that. ask nicely. He asked nicely. I said if his teacher said he behaved well today, then after class i;d buy it for him. Well, he went ape shit.  He highly embarrassed me by his behavior. DH and i fight sometimes and unfortunately its in front of them sometimes. i hate that :(

That is a difficult time. They are adjusting to a lot of things at that age.
Hugs
