    Default Help with remaining calm

    Can someone please give advice on any books etc or strategies to cope with DS/DD. I get so angry quickly and I'm really hating/failing being a mum right now.

    Finding out DS has ASD has really hit my nerves and just everything else. I just react instantly I'm on edge and haven't had time to talk to gp. I haven't even been disciplining my kids 😱 I don't know where to begin.

    Completely understandable with everything you have had going on. You aren't failing though, asking for help proves that! No one can blame you for letting go a little and losing your cool. I know myself, I've found walking away before I turn into a screaming crazy mum is the best thing. As long as my girls weren't in harms way, then taking a few minutes to calm down away from them worked good for me. I can't help with any books but I'm sure someone on here can x

    I really like Calm Parent Happy Child by Dr Laura Markham. It's wonderful. Available on Kindle too.
