I feel like I spend a lot of time yelling and I hate it.
My kids are 7 and 4. Weekends can be hell. We’re around each other every day, they fight, ask to watch TV 100 times a day, etc. Just today my 4 year old pulled a coffee cup off the table and poured cold coffee over her head, dropped her bowl of pudding on the ground (I yelled this time) and finally, stepped on the glass panel to my large photo frame. It was a project I was finally getting around to, daughter came over and stood on the panel and broke it. I lost my temper and screamed. I had enough! In the moment it feels good but immediately after I felt like dirt. I was raised by a dad with a hot temper. I don’t want to carry it on, but how much can a person take in a day before breaking?! It’s so frustrating! But how do I do better while still enforcing consequences?
