I feel terrible ! For the pass week i have been yelling screaming at my sons 2.5 and 1.5 years of age. They don't want to eat real food nor take naps. We have a routine and ours routine mean nothing lately. My oldest son who doesn't listen to me anymore. I find myself screaming no all the I send him to the corner talk to him slowly of course it didn't work so I scream to the top of my lungs so I don't beat the crap out of him. He throws tantrum hits the wall and kicks and cries and then he cries some more. I don't know what to do anymore. And yes I am a bad mom lately so bash away. I honestly don't know what to do beside saying stop no the scream and yell.

You're not a bad mom, you're stressed out.

Time out in the corner, sometimes I take his truck away if he crashed it into the wall or his brother.

I'm honestly not sure. I only have an 8 month old.
Just don't be too hard on yourself (or your kids).

1 mom liked this

At this age they won't understand yelling and screaming.

The 2.5 year old will understand time out.  Make a place for him that is the "timeout place".  Make him stay there for 2 minutes.  When that 2 minutes is up get on his level and explain why he is in trouble.  Make him look you in the eyes.  


As for your 1.5 year old he should follow suit with the 2.5 year old.  

They are mimicking your reaction to what they do.  Tension will build in the home the more angry you become.
