Mama to H (3/18/08) and A (8/25/09)
I'm a bad mother. I must be.
DD (2 yrs)'s tantrums have gotten *exponentially* worse in the past month. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I have to admit I've lost my cool a few times. Somedays, it's like every second minute, there's something not to her liking...the little foam circle won't fit into its place, she can't sit on something precarious, she trips on something, the crayon won't work the way she wants, she can't get her pants up herself...it never ends!
I try to help. I offer to help. Everything is "NO mama". Then she freaks out, throws things, hits things, hits me, bites me, bites HERSELF, and yells bloody murder. I tried to redirect her but she ends up hurting me and herself. A few times last week, I had to hold her tight in my arms while she screamed, wailed, a hurt me repeatedly, until she cried it all out and calmed down. It took forever.
What do I do?? I've never done this before! DD is my first and only! I don't have a partner to help so I'm totally lost here...
