    My pity is with your daughter.

    I'm really glad you're getting help.

    Yes. I am getting help. No I don't need your judgement. Yes there is much more to my story then you will ever know or understand so please please spare me the pity, judgment or whatever else you feel the need to throw at me.
    I don't see where I judged?!

    Simply asked if you were seeking help - I'm glad to see you are!

    No pity for you - only sadness for your DD!

    It's pretty hard hey.

    At one stage I just felt like I was yelling constantly, it was awful. I rang a couple of organisations, the local council etc, and was bawling my eyes out to a girl on the phone saying I just need to access some family counselling or something to help get me and my daughters communicating normally again (they were also snappy and yelling at each other rather than talking), and I was told each time 'Dont be too hard on yourself, everyone yells at their kids sonetimes'. Um.... Not helpful! I was reaching out for help and literally got nowhere!

    Somehow things have improved heaps here, glad to hear you're getting help too

    No judgement, no pity, just asking if you have looked at why. Yes you have. I hope your relationship grows stronger and you can talk to each other.

    That, plus there's no way I will be known as "the lady down the street who yells at her kids"

    I have one of those ladies down the street and I can't believe how loud and out of control she gets some days yelling.. No screaming at her kid/kids.

    I had neighbours who would scream at everyone, my poor dd was a nervous wreck. They moved in about a year after I bought, took 5 years to get housing to kick them out.

    I think a lot of the people who have posted saying no only have one child and/or their children are quiet young <3

    It's all well and good to give pointers but when I'm feeding the baby and my 4 yr old is about to pinch or bite his 3 yr old brother on the other side of the room I yell at him. Now that doesn't mean that I don't follow it up...and someone listening next door isn't going to hear that conversation. So I wouldn't judge unless you are actually a fly on the wall!

    So screaming and yelling is actually a trigger for me and the few times DH has lost his patience and yelled I've crumpled into a terrified, inconsolable ball.
    I understand. The only significant childhood memory of my father is him raging with his hand raised at me for being noisy when I was sitting in the loungeroom doing my homework, my older sisters were screaming at eachother but knew how to "go to ground" when they heard him coming. These days if DH raises his voice in the house (rarely) then I instinctively hide -> in the bathroom, toilet, I have even found myself in my wardrobe.

    My father was abusive towards my mum and older sister, but this is the only time I remember him being shouty/threatening towards ME (so many unwanted memories of him screaming at my mum and older sisters) and it truly damaged me. Hence why I HATE yelling at my girls and try so hard to rise above it.

    just hugs and positive thoughts. YOU know what you need to do/be. All the best of luck and positivity with it

    Unfortunately yes I have yelled at my 4 year old, though can't remember the last time.
    I have a 17 month old too OP and I don't think I have ever yelled at her, except in pain if she yanks my hair or something. But that isn't really AT her, it's just because of her action startling/hurting me. I would be really upset with myself if I yelled at her, just like I am when I yell at DS
