Frustration And Yelling
This is the most embarrassing thing I would ever have to admit to but I need some answers... so I'm going to put myself on the spot. I love my 18 month old son more than anything. But I don't know why, but when I get frustrated with him I yell and sometimes even lash out at him and I can see that it scares him a lot.
He cries. I cannot describe the feeling I have to deal with after I do so and I cry because I feel so terrible. I know I hurt my baby's feelings and I want to fix things right away. And never hurt him again.
Some people tell me it's no big deal all parents get frustrated and lash out... it's not like you're abusing him. But I feel just as bad. I still know he's hurt.
Please give me some advice. I feel so horrible and I need to mend this so I can go on. And so he knows mommy didn't mean it.
