I have a 12 year boy who I think hates me. I have been a yeller when it comes to my kids. I realized this was affecting him poorly a couple years ago so I'v made an effort to curb my yelling. When I have to say something three times I do still find myself yelling but it's not as often as it used to be. This may have been verbal abuse but I never called him names or put him down. He keeps telling me that I'm always yelling at him which makes me mad because I don't think I'm doing it that much anymore. I think he sees me as this total b**** and this bothers me. I think my constant guilt over mistakes I'v made in the past are keeping me from being a better parent. Any advice on how to stop feeling guilty?
