    Default When you ' lose it' at your kids.

    Do you shout, cry, ignore, what do you do. ? I tend to shout...a few occasions ive cried. They were so shocked they stopped what they where doing so it kind of worked actually.

    All of the above my DS loves to push the boundaries and I've recently become a single mum so its all on me these days I hate yelling I feel like the worst mum in the world and some days I think god I'd love to just hand you over to your dad (I know mother of the year award goes to me right) but I miss him like crazy, when he's not here I feel so empty. I think I just need to work on my coping skills I just keep telling myself it's just a phase

    I unfortunately yell

    I hate myself for it.

    In my defence, I'm 20w utd, dh is working interstate and so I'm raising 2 boys alone.

    I actually think I'm very very patient, but just occasionally eveytjing gets overwhelming and I lose the plot.

    I yell, not always but still. Sometimes walk away and cry if I'm at my limit.

    Yell atm. I hate it but even when i yell it doesnt do anything. Everything is just a waste of time and effort with my DS.

    Bit of everything really. Guess it just depends on how much they've pushed and pushed that day.

    Yell but my whole family yell rather than talk so its not just when losing it. I cant stand it. Im trying to change. DH hates yelling he comes from a soft quiet family. DD is 2 she does not need to be yelled at I suck at being a mum.

    I yelled at my DD when she was little, and felt terrible. Now I don't yell at all, well I might if say he was about to be hit by a car.

    I don't think it helps the situation at all.

    If I'm extremely frustrated I will try and take a few minutes by myself, and ask myself if I would be so frustrated or upset if this occurred on a good day etc. I also try to reason with him and make him feel like he has choices.

    That's just what works for me.

    I yell at ds. I've tried getting down on his level, eye contact, asking nicely, getting him to repeat what I've asked him to do but the only thing that gets results is yelling unfortunately. I don't have to yell at dd1 because she does what I ask without a problem and dd2 is only little.

    I rarely yell but yesterday I did and DS just laughed at me. He later bit me really hard not to hurt me just trying out his teeth and I jumped in pain, yelped and almost cried. He laughed at first and then cried when he realised I was upset. I usually try to walk away from him.
