My child is 2, I am the adult.

This has become my mantra this evening. With the frustration of dealing with a 2-yr-old all day long, every I am surprised more childcare providers don't go off the deep end. I am trying SO hard to be a good parent and some days like today, he just pushes every button he can. I am SO frustrated!

Well,i am sorry to hear what you said.Yes,a kid can really make an adult to backbeaking.I remembered clearly when my son is only 1 month old,he make four adults backbreaking.He cried all night.Well, it just like a nightmare.But as time went on,the situation turns to good. Now my son is six yrs old,and in the morning i sent him to preschool. He eats and sleep at noon in school,so i can have a rest at the noon.And on the afternoon,i pick him up,playing with him outsid for some time,then go home to have supper.And then he will palys by himself for a while or watchs some children's programme.And at last he goes to bed till the next morning. i feel no hard at all.Well,time flys,your 2-ur-old will be six.And you know what,sometimes i miss the time when my son was still young.So do not complain,just enjoying the time with your little kid.

Thankfully the days he makes me want to pull my hair out and run aroung screaming are few and far between, but on those days it feels like it will never end.

My momma always said their be days like this....... Sounds all to familiar, Don't feel like your alone, we have all been there rather we like to admit it or not. And today, has been a challenging day, with all the kids here, (I run a daycare). I felt as if they all woke up , took off their ears and threw them under their beds before coming to my place, I had to repeat myself All day. Three out four left kicking and screaming, throwing fits for their moms, for no reason. It's just been one of those days for everyone.

You run a day care? OMG, you must have the patience of an angel. I love my son beyond belief but a lot of that is because he IS my son. Having any sort of patience with someone else's child acting like that? I'd probably snap.

I hear you, I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old and we are trying to move. I will be getting a part time job soon but I am dying about having to have someone else care for my kids. My mom is going to help me which will be wonderful for sure but at the same time, I am pretty positive that most daycare providers have their own disciplining ways and most kids will behave better with other people than when they are with their own parents...I do not know what it is but it is very true.

I guess as parents we are old news to them. I need to try to get my parents to babysit soon. He's an angel for them and a break is definitely needed.

No wonder you have over 1400 responses and still only have a 6 rating. Maybe if you tried relating to the person who is in the situation a bit more, your rating will go up.
