i need some advice. I am physically and emotionally exhausted and am unable to catch a break. as a result my AP skills are less than stellar and my dd is receiving the brunt of my impatience. What i want to know is, How do you cope with parenting under difficult circumstances? As she's napping right now, I can reflect on how i made poor choices in handling her tantrums and her "strong will" today. I had to put myself in a timeout and leave her crying for me because I couldn't handle it. I hate when i end up losing my temper and yelling back and basically turn into a 2yo myself. Then i worry about scarring her or something on days i lose it and seem to throw AP out the window. I feel like the worst mom sometimes. We practice AP in all areas, but sometimes positive discipline, empathy, and patience can be the biggest struggle. Thanks for letting me vent. And thanks for any advice.
