Let me preface this by saying I love and adore my DD more than anything on the planet! Lately though I have been feeling like I really don't 'like' her sometimes though? I'm feeling really ashamed to admit that so please reply nicely
She is 3 and her behaviour is pushing me to a place where I turn into an angry resentful mum. I am a fulltime SAHM and some mornings I wake up thinking 'not another day with DD!'
She is a lot of work, always has been. Shocking sleeper, terrible eater, never listens, does whatever she wants and doesn't care about the consequences. I hate taking her to the shops because she has massive meltdowns and runs off on me. I turn my back for a second and she's ran from me!
She is a beautiful sweet natured child but she is very strong willed and everything is 'her way or the highway'. You cannot compromise with her. I've tried all sorts of techniques and the behaviour is set in stone. I'm at my wits end!
Everything is a struggle or a fight, I'm worn out and I'm sometimes sick of being her mum as terrible as that sounds because I adore her completely! She pushes me and bosses me around I feel like she's broken me! A 3 year old!! People ask when we'll have another and honestly I couldn't think of anything worse than having another that could potentially behave like DD.
Some days she is so horrible I find myself wishing I'd never had her. *tears*
Has anyone else felt like this from a child? It's an awful rotten way to feel. I just want to enjoy my beautiful girl again and not struggle all day everyday!
Thanks for reading.
