I feel like this past week has just been failure after failure. I couldn't go even one day without yelling at the kids! Leaving the house was a constant battle every day, even when we were going somewhere fun. The kids were fighting a lot and I was loosing my mind. I'm trying to be a better parent, but I honestly feel like I'm failing. My kids deserve to have a mom who respects them and talks to them in a respectful way, but I am having such a hard time not yelling. I get so frustrated and my voice just raises without much thought. I know I am naturally a loud person and I try to modulate my volume, but I know even if the words I'm saying are not terrible, yelling is damaging my kids. Hopefully this week will go better.
