i cant do it anymore im so stressed out. i have 3 kids and a dh whos out of town most the week and when hes home hes just as bad as a child. im so angry all the time. i just want some time to myself. i had everything set up for my youngest to go to preschool 4 hrs days 2xs per week but now she is peeing her pants multiple times a day(she doesnt have a uti) maybe nerves but they wont accept her if shes not potty trained and dont allow pull ups. idk but i want her out of the house, i need it or i will break. im doing everything and im to the max. im crying right now. i just wish i could be super mom but i cant

How old is your daughter? I am sorry everything is so hard! Maybe at about having time to yourself when DH is home? My therapist always reminds me that I need to make myself the priority otherwise I am no good doing anything for the kids

Sh3 might be picking up on your feelings and stressing out m kids are very receptive. Have a long talk with your dh and tell him what's up.

Bribe her. Small steps. If she normally has two accidents make the goal only 1 time a day then she gets her treat. As she improves increase expectations. Because you know she can do it. Send many outfits for her. Don't come in when it happens. Kids will do that to just get to see mom.

Focus on what you enjoy about your kids instead of what drives you nuts. Remember, you can't control the situation, only your attitude

2 of your kids are in school fulltime, why is your 3/4 year old too much to handle alone?

I have 3 kids too and i get it, but mine are 4,2, and 8 months and all still at home.
