For the past two or three days I have been out of control with agitation and anger. I turn from calm and happy to screaming and ready to tear my hair out instantly. My 7 yr old son is usually what spurs me to anger - he refuses to listen and follow rules, deliberately disobeys me and argues. This is something that has been getting worse for a few months now and I've always found a way of managing it; sitting him down and having him explain to me why he behaves the way he does and then talking about ways of changing.
But lately, I can't muster patience. I'm screaming at him at the first offense and not even trying to have a rational conversation. I get on the phone with DH (who is out of town for work for 3 weeks) and tell him how horrible I have been and instead of talking to me about how to manage, he tells me I've lost control of our son and I'm not disciplining enough. I got so angry on the phone this morning when he told me I needed to relax I hung up on him.
I'm sorry to be venting. I don't know where to turn or who to talk to. I feel like I'm going to explode into pieces at any moment.
Mommy to the most wonderful boy, 7 yrs old.
