    Default So not cut out for parenting.

    I love my kids to bits. If I could let them do whatever they want and just have fun with them parenting would be a breeze. School holidays makes it worse. Ds is 5 and on preschool holidays. He is very demanding wanting time spent with him 24/7 . So I make time to do as he pleases building Lego or playing tennis etc. I give him plenty warning before I have to do other stuff but then he gets more demanding. Dd6 is good and can play by herself but can get so whiney about stuff. Gets very frustrating. Try to do and organise fun stuff for them but never good enough. So over it right now.

    Completely know how you feel when you're trying to do something else and they just want your attention. My girls are 6,4,3&1 when they start I send them outside to play or we go for a ride/walk works a treat for us!!

    Hate to break it too you but this attitude doesn't change much. I took my girls bowling, to the movies, whale watching, and shopping in the first week of the two week holidays last year. I heard them on the phone to their father the following week saying they had done 'nothing' all holidays. So the following holidays we did nothing. Sat around the house and watched tv, and whenever they asked to do something I pointed out what had happened the previous holiday.
    At the time they were 11 and 13. Now they are 12 and 14 and have learnt to be more realistic about school holidays.

    I hear you! DD1 is in prep and on school holidays. Her being at home changes the dynamic so much, I feel like curling up in the fetal position and crying!
    All my kids are just lovely, but put them together for 3 weeks and I start counting down the minutes until school starts again.
    Don't know how I'm going to cope with2 MONTHS holiday over Christmas!

    I am just gonna say i am relieved school is back for my DS. He spent it at vacation care as i had to work but his attitude was absolutely horrible to me over the holidays.

    Do you have vacation care nearby? I put my oldest (6) into vacation care and my preschool-aged daughter (4) into daycare during the holidays.

    My oldest loves vacation care as a lot of her school friends go there, and they have heaps of activities/excursions etc


    ETA: Depending on how much they charge, with CCB & CCR it may work out to be quite cheap (I know our local vacation care was heaps cheaper than what I was expecting it to be, and hours are 8-6)

    I'm so the same, my two are nearly 7 and 4 and today has just been full on! The attitude, demanding, whingy whiny rubbish has done my head in. My oldest also complains he never does anything but its so untrue.

    Whilst I'm enjoying not having to rush to school/childcare/preschool I am looking forward to going back to normal routine.

    I too am not looking forward to Christmas Holidays!!
