screaming

Any working mum tend to scream and scream to your toddler...lately I am screaming at my toddler. She doesnt want to listen. I am tired seriously. I am a single mother, I do everything. Oh my god.

I think our patience is test every single day, plus their energy level is so high. It will be a tiring journey but it will keep getting better as they grow, Jiayou!

dont scream or misbehave in front of her. child will copy what they are seeing, especially viewing parents as role model. if you are really losing your cool, vent out when your kid is not around

Take it easy mummy.. though im not a single mum, but i feel like one too. Cause husband most of the time not helping at all, if not wont be at home at all. It gets frustrating with lack of sleep and babies crying at the same time. I used to scold my son alot too, but i realised scolding him wouldnt make any difference cause he doesn't understand much when we scream. He might have a thought of "mummy doesnt love me" hence will cry even more. In my opinion, just talk to her nicely, tell her this and that cannot, mummy is tired so dont do all these to make mummy angry okay? After awhile they will learn how to control their anger. All the best mummy 👍🏻

I don’t scream at her but I tend to distract her a lot. Like if she goes wailing she doesn’t want to eat diner, I pick her up and tell her we are going to go watch the stars for a bit and then I start to sing and rock her and when she’s calmed down a little I tell her that the stars have names and I name them all of her friends and then I slowly start to feed her all the while telling her stories about her friends and the stars. It’s tiring a.f but seems to work. I was raised in a screaming household and I hated it as a child, so I am trying to avoid that for my kid :) Being a mum is not easy. Hang in there

Yes I think most of us do that:( Though that does not mean it's the right thing to do, you shouldn't be so hard on yourself either. we are all humans and it takes a lot of hard work to deal with such matters. I try and remind myself that yelling at kids do nothing to make us or the child feel better and it's been proven that kids who get yelled at often have low self esteem. Remember we only want the best for our child so always remind ourselves that before screaming at your child. Good luck!

Me too. These days I keep on shouting to my toddler cause she dont listen to me sometimes. And I felt guilty after that.

I believe it is normal, as at the end of the day all of us are tired from work And when our kids don’t listen to us, we will scream at that hoping they’ll listen to us and behave properly

We tend to get very easily irritated when we are tired, especially with lil kids. Cz in their mind, it's playtime EVERYTIME. But I hope we tryta tone down and be extra patient bcz i dont think you want your child to grow up to be screamed at all the time. Im sure it will hurt her lil heart and she'll hold grudges. Try to reason with her insteadof screaming. This is the time whr children will remember for the restof their life. Their childhood. Maybe put in mind that you wanna respect your lil one's heart. And she will learn that from you too, her Awesome mum that she looks up to❤️ a reminder for me too. Or mayybeee.. You cn try singing it out instead! Like she will look at you in confusion and you two will probably laugh it out. Haha! I will try it on my kid!!
