    My mum prefers vodka 😂 I didn't mind the drinking, except when I had to bail dad out lmao. The parties got better as I got older and started to join in 😋

    While my comment earlier was a bit lighthearted, my dad was also a yeller and I hated it. I have his short fuse and his temper and I hate it. If an adult yelled at me now I'd be shocked and probably cry. I hate to think how I'm making my kids feel when I yell at them in anger. I try and refrain as much as possible and I'm very, very slowly getting better at it, but I still do it and it's simply just not a nice thing to do to someone.

    I totally agree and I've noticed DD4 is starting to yell at her sister so I MUST refrain as I do not want her to become a ME. I have good control some days. Its not nice but sometimes it's the only way DD listens because she then realises I'm serious. I've tried everything even reward charts nothing works with my child. I haven't had to yell much this week hoping it's the end of an era and my girls are going to be sweet little angels from here on end 😛 but I doubt it 🙈 my BF says teenage years are worse oh Lord!!

    Yeah, DS1 yells at DS2 then I'm bellowing at them both to stop arguing and yelling....

    Um, good example to set there Mum!

    I fall into the "do as I say, not as I do" parenting style. How fabulously ineffective.

    I need to change as I used to smack and I realised it wasn't working. So I started time out.

    I am short fused because I'm also exhausted with DS not sleeping I have zero energy. 😱 i just snap all day!

    My mum was a horrible mum. Never listening etc only tells her POV so I really want to try and be a better mum

    Honestly, @Moxy 's comment was not completely accurate.
    Some of us prefer bourbon.
    Feel better now ?

    I think we are good mums because we realise what we are doing wrong and want to change. I totally understand being tired it's hard work.
