Lately I easily get angry and very emotional especially when I am left alone with my three small children. When one of them throw their tantrums on me, I easily react with anger, I shout, sometimes I spank them out of anger. Sometimes I have to hit my hand in the wall to release the anger that I feel. In short, I don’t know how to manage my anger, is this normal for a mom like me? By the way, I just had a baby last June…is my anger related to post-partum?is that the right word?what is it by the way?

I am sure bringing up children is not an easy task. Having to take care of three young children can drive almost anyone mad. Not very sure about this but I doubt it's post natal since you gave birth more than a year ago. It's not easy to manage anger. It's even harder when you have no time to yourself. The only thing I can suggest is for you to go into the bathroom when you feel that anger creeping up. Take deep breathes until you feel calmer. Alternatively grab some ice cubes from the fridge and touch them to you neck. Hope they'll help. Take care and keep your cool.
