I'm really glad you're getting help.

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

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.

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!

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.

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
