do you have a "done" point with your kids? what do you do when you get to that point? im pretty sure we all get there sometimes...trying to not feel alone right now while my lovely dd is throwing her 100th fit for the day and refusing to go to bed.

this is what i do..i jump online and vent or i step on the back patio and let out a scream so im sure the neighbors think i am a nut case if they can heard me or she ends up in her room (where she is now, throwing a fit on the floor, lol) or if daddy is home he takes over. i am only to my done point because she has pushed every last button with me today. first it was this morning when i asked her to get dressed and ready, then it was at the play area at the mall when she was acting up and multiple other things and now because i said no you cant have icecream at 9 pm at night...bed was an hour ago! eeekk mamas done tonight

depends on my mood and how pg I am

If I have to repeat the same thing 5x to the same kid within two minutes, they are getting close! On the 6th time my voice is now raised and they know they'd better get it together.

I try to nip tantrums in the bud very early on, like I need four kids tantrumming at the same time, lol! They either sort it out or figure out a less screamy/destructive/annoying way to communicate how they feel.

When I get close to my breaking point I step outside where I can't hear them yelling at me. I give myself about 1 minute and then I usually have the presence of mind to go back into the ring for another round.

Umm, I only have one daily...I just tell them to let me be for a moment, and I'm normally fine after that.
