REALLY NEED SOME HELP PLEASE

Posted by   + Show Post

no bashing please...

I cannot have a good day with my kids. I would love to go speak with a professional, but I am scared. Does anyone know who I can talk to openly and honestly without the fear of my kids being taken away REAGARDLESS of what they "think" is happening.

I dont feel like my kids are in danger, but they are not having a good childhood and I feel like I am a horrible mother.

Go get a book called boundaries with kids. by Drs. Cloud and Townsend. It should help you.

I'd try talking to one of the mentor moms at your MOPS group. The ones in our group are an amazing resouce. Also, it sounds like your handling things better than you think you are. Keep your head up momma!

No one is perfect all the time.  Can you go to McDonalds to to a place where there are a lot of parents and observe their behavior to emulate?  I'm sure there are free parenting books at the library.  If you want to post more details that would help get more answers.

 You just need a break from your kids, a good weekend. I feel like I need that

A liscense therapist, psychologist, or even a church pastor (assuming that you have a church near you that you would feel acceptable using) would be good. They would all offer you a good sounding board and reassurance. They won't take your kids or report anything unless they think you are truly causing harm to your children's nd they are in danger.
Your statement that you say you don't feel you are abusing or neglecting them but you're not sure someone else will concerns me. It's as though you feel like what you are doing is questionable, hence your fear. Please find someone, you are not out of options.
