Reply To: Running out of patience..


It can be extremely hard on you. Make sure that you are giving yourself some attention. Make it a point to do things that rejuvenate and replenish you. You will be better able to handle the storm. Sometimes, the tantrum will just not go on or get as bad because you are composed; because you had that coffee with a friend, soak in the tub, scenic drive, movie date, whatever. On the whole, even without tantrums, children of all kinds and sizes can be draining. We would do good service to them by giving ourselves some attention. Love them but love yourself too. 🙂
