Re: My 17 month old is draining us

Thanks for all the responses. It felt good to get it off my chest and feels even better to know you guys don't think I'm a terrible mom.

I do realize there's a major power struggle starting. DH often loses his patience faster than I do, so I'm constantly trying to get him to stick to his guns (i.e. with the TV). I have started to let LO cry and carry on a few minutes when it's nothing but drama.

Just nice to know I'm not alone.. I know he'll get better.

And I don't take anything offensively.. everything said is with good intent. I also think he's extremely easier when around other children (which shockingly enough doesn't make me want to give him siblings any faster LOL) - and why he does better at daycare - he has stimulation, friends his size, plenty of imaginative and spontaneous play that DH and I can't always give him at home.

One day at a time ...
