I need some real advice please...
I cannot stop yelling at my kids. I cant stand it anymore. I have had posts like this in the past and I get everyone has had those days, its normal, etc.
This is NOT normal. I yell everyday, multiple times a day for nop reason at all. Things that I should not even be yelling at them for. I feel completely guilty afterwards, but cannot stop myself before hand because I am sooo frustrated.
I dont know what to do.
Most of the yelling (NOT ALL) comes when I am trying to do something and they are climbing on me or getting in my face. Other times it could be they are fighting, or constantly getting into stuff and I am literally chasing them around cleaning up after them - which then gives me no time for myself or to spend with them.
IDK - any ideas besides therapy? I am tired of yelling to the point of losing my voice.
And I have tried just talking to them first and they dont listen until i yell also. I can say something like please put your toys away and i get ignored and by the 10th time saying it within 5 minutes I am screaming put your toys away now at the top of my lungs. Then they listen to me. I hate it.
time outs DO NOT work either so please dont bother replying with that and yes I am consistent with it.
