I barely got any sleep last night, so as such I am angry, I find this is often the case when I get little or no sleep, the problem with this is my partner is at work so its just me and a three year old who loves to push boundries. I am serious its his fav thing to do at the moment.
Now if you are a parent, one of the things you ultimately have to decide is how to instil discipline, different people take on different roles, whether its a form of letting your child learn themselves to using smacks.
We however are a time out family. Its where you put a child on a step or in their room or in a special place for x amount of time x being a minute for every year, so for us, my son has to sit for 3 minute, Now while my son isn’t bad under any extreme, he is deaf to his name or when he is ask to do things, but then show me a toddler that isn’t. We use these time outs. When I am angry, I go into time outs because it gives me a chance to calm down and think am I going to tell him off because he has done something wrong or because I am angry,
On these days we change the time outs so as not to confuse him. Instead of him sitting on the stairs for 3 minutes, I go into the kitchen and take some deep breaths and calm down, I find them very useful and tend not to over react to something that wouldn’t normally bother me
