Today I lost my shit with my kid
And I’m feeling terrible.
When Ellie is crying uncontrollably and she won’t listen to me, I just can’t help it, I feel triggered and I see red.
I don’t want this situation to ever happen again so I’ve made a research on Google “what to do when you get mad at your child when she cries”.
First thing I wanna say is, it’s actually comforting to know I’m not the only one.
Secondly, although I knew it already, the best thing to do is to take a step back and breathe deeply before take any action.
Easier said than done when you’re in the red zone but that’s better than screaming “stop crying” because it doesn’t help and creates more frustration than anything.
