Not enjoying motherhood most of the time☹️
I am lucky that my son was always a very easy going child, but ever since my daughter was born 2 years ago, I really do not enjoy being a mom. She is an extremely challenging toddler to say the least, I reached out to child therapists and her pediatrician out of concern several times. She bangs her head violently on the floor probably 10 times a day because she snaps if she doesn’t immediately get what she wants. I’ve tried positive reinforcement, comforting her, ignoring it, nothing works. And my both kids fight nonstop bc she is just so difficult. I spent 75% of my day yelling, and on the verge of tears. My SO works 9 am to 9 pm so I never have help, and on weekends he says he needs a break and I just never get one. Family is far away and all of my friends have their own families and life to handle. I want to enjoy this time as I know so well that it goes by quickly, and everyday I start off with gratitude and I’m happy and it just quickly goes down hill. Not sure what anyone can say to help, but I need to vent!
