    Default Can't stop yelling. Please help

    I feel like I have no control over my kids. I'm a bit OCD (probably heaps).

    DS is almost 2, dd almost 3. She understands and he does too but I don't think to her extent. She will sit in time out but I don't think she understands why even though I explain you had to sit there because you did xyz. I feel my blood boil at everything.

    I feel like a horrible mum

    Can I please have some tips. They don't respect toys etc they throw food on floor I'm going insane

    Pick your battles.

    If they throw food, take it away.

    If they break toys, pack them away for a week.

    No advice but definitely sympathy. I yell a lot. Too much. And I hate it.

    I find 1,2,3 wines is far more effective 😉

    I don't think getting ****ed is the answer guys and trust me children don't like it when parents drink too much.

    Really? Kids don't like it when parents drink too much? Mind. blown. Gee lucky you came in to stop us all from our deluded beliefs.
    Honestly, @Moxy 's comment was not completely accurate.
    Some of us prefer bourbon.
