When i first had my kids i was as sweet as pie. I thought they were the best things on earth (still do) i never raised my voice, i spoke to them kindly and lovingly and they used to talk so kind in return.
Now that they are 3 and 4 (and i am pregnant) i find myself so short, not patient at alllllll, and i have started yelling alot!!!!! Anyone do that???? How do you stop????
THey just do these things you know, like 1000 messes, and thats before lunch. They cry, complain, whine, squirt toothpaste in the toilet (The whole tube no less),. (guess its better than the floor lol) They mess everything right after i clean and my husband probubly thinks i do nothing all day lol
I am as diligent as it gets at being consistant with training them to pick up after themselves, i never ever let them get away with bad behavior or disrespect etc. But i feel so weighed down, its just always something 'horrible' going on it seems. They play rough after being taught all day not too and then someone gets hurt etc... the list goes on and on??
How do you all handle the stress of preschoolers???? If i train them to put all there books away, great they do that then they find something else to get into or mess up or just cry and whine about!!!!! Any tips are always welcomed!!! I tell them get there jammies on, they all of a sudden have a 'tummy ache' i say please put your dish in the sink and now there back hurts lol what are they 90 years old lol,
I love them so much and its so nice when they listen, we have such a great time, but its really hard when all day long is just stress!!!!!! (sorry i am done venting lol)
Please any help out there!!!!!!!
