Re: Please help with my 5-yr-old before I lose my mind

Hugs mama. I think some of it is the age because my 5 year old (and now newly 6 year old) does the exact same thing. No advice, as we're battling it too.

Good luck!

Re: Please help with my 5-yr-old before I lose my mind

Thank you for posting this! DS is only 4.5 but this is our day every day... I'm a yeller and I'm tired of it... he's now yelling at his sisters and so I get more angry/frustrated and start yelling louder... This really smacked me in the face yesterday when he screamed his head off at me and we're working really hard to all use our inside voices and mommy is going to try to stop raising her voice so much.
There's been a lot of helpful advice and I really appreciate it!
