I am a mother of 2 boys (age 3 and 4 mths) my problem is that i have such bad outbursts, i think stemming from frustration, i have always had a mean temper, but it has just seem to have spiraled out of control,since having kids. so much so that i sound almost possessed when i end up screaming. i can be fine throughout the day, but come evening, i am tired and looking for a time out ( which i know is perfectly acceptable), my husband does help out when he gets home from work, but i end up going in a frenzy when the kids are not wanting to fall in line and go to sleep, i end up screaming at everyone, even though it is not there fault, i throw and break things the other night, i was trying to put the youngest of the to boys asleep, and he was not co-operating, so i threw my toys out the cot, and literally punch the light switch on, breaking it and cutting my fist to shreds. it is getting worst everyday, and more frequent, and i am worried i am going to start taking my anger out on my kids, i am ashamed to admit it, but the thought has crossed my mind. after my outbursts, i feel incredibly guilty, and vow to myself never to repeat it, but come the next day, my patience is tried once more. help me!
