So anyone who is a parent knows that as much as its the most wonderful thing in the world to have kids They can make you extremely angry or frustrated.. What do you do when your kids wont get off your nerves? I always go outside to get some fresh air. WHen I start feeling myself getting ready to explode I step outside and breathe in fresh air.. I love my kids to death but hey I am only human and can only take so much nagging.LOL What is it that you do

Its always better to divert the attention of the kids if they are just ignoring you what you are telling them to do.Suppose if the kid is watching TV continuously & you are saying to him since half an hour to switch off the TV & he is not heeding your words just try to divert his attention first to what he is interested in.You really cant leave them & go out & take a fresh breadth.Somehow you have to manage them & bring them back to normal.It depends on his preferences while diverting his attention. Always try to be soft with the kids.Dont get angry with them.If you scold them with your mouthful he will come to the terms & takes it very lightly.They hear your words when you talk to them with utmost love.

I understand what your saying but I do go outside on my back steps to get some fresh air so I dont just scream at them..It calms my nerves down.. Its not like I am leaving them alone and going for a car ride. its just out on my back stoop. And that fresh air gives me what I need.. Thank you for sharing and responding
