worst mom ever

I yell at my 7&5 year olds a lot. I know it's wrong but I don't know how else to deal with them. They don't listen when I'm nice and it takes yelling to get them to do what I ask. I also have found myself cussing at them. It breaks my heart I don't want them to have this angry mom. I don't know how to change.

Firm, fair, consistent at all times. Same rules at all times. Same punishment/restrictions for the same offenses. I used to yell too much too. You aren't alone.

Take a time-out/break for yourself to calm down. Breathe deeply and try to relax all over. Then address the situation.

how about when you are calm sit them down and say that you dont like yelling at them and cursing at them when they dont listen but that you are their mommy and when they are told something they have to listen to you.
