I have two little ones, 3 and 18 mo. The three year old is smart as a whip and negotiates everything. Problem is I am exhausted and I can't keep my calm when she tells me she will take care of the baby (and lets her out the front door while I was in the bathroom) or tells me she is bored of me and and doesn't love me. I don't take it personally, we have a great relationship and I adore her, I just find myself screaming at her and it seems to be the only thing that makes her stop and listen.
I know this stems from feeling like I have no support right now and I'm not getting any sleep and having issues at home and work- she does not deserve this. How do I keep it together with her when I feel like I am falling apart? I just need her to say yes to somethings- and not no, no, no her way is the only way...
Please, advice? I am going nuts..
