Stuck in a parenting rut?
If so, some of this might sound familiar.
All I do is yell.
I feel like all I do is yell at my children. Lately, not only is my yelling scaring my child, it's scaring me.
The frustration loop.
I go to bed dreading the arrival of a new day. I don't want the madness to start all over again.
Make it go away.
I'm so frustrated with my child's behavior I've begun to lock myself in my room and just cry.
It's about time.
I can't remember the last time I spent meaningful time with my child or told or showed them how much I love them.
The dreaded "H" word.
My child told me they "hate" me and it just broke my heart. What am I doing wrong?
I often view my child as a burden. I think I've allowed too many other things to get in the way of my relationship with him/her.
