HELP!!! Need advice: Loved one losing it, lashing out at kids
Someone very dear me is losing their mind. She has 3 kids under 4 and is very overwhelmed and frustrated. Though she is married, her husband works all the time and doesn't really do anything when he is around. She lashes out at the kids, swearing at them, telling them they've ruined her life, and now has resulted in telling them to F off. She calls me while melting down all the time. It breaks my heart. She beats her head (literally) out of frustration, throws her belongings and sometimes food out of rage.
She tries really hard, but trying to be all things to all people is taking a toll. What would you do? I'll update later to bring you up to speed on what I've been doing when I have more time. Please give me your honest suggestions and opinions.
