Let the meltdowns begin- A Really Mommy Moment
We are in the stage of meltdowns and tantrums at our house. I must say as the mother those moments feel to me like some of the loneliest times possible. My child is kicking and screaming and is inconsolable and I feel horrible and alone. I don't know how to help, she is beyond reasoning at the moment and I feel as though everyone in town must be able to see right through my walls at what seems like a totally chaotic and crazy home. The thing is she can go from zero to 60 in just a matter of moments-some of which I have control over and some of which I don't. No matter the cause I always feel like a terrible parent and then in the next moment when she is calm and hugging me I wish time would stop. Someone please tell me she will turn out just fine and be a happy, healthy, cooperative child. Please tell me it will get better.
