It’s a battle today…

I am battling with my children today. Some days the control I have over them is not there. It’s my fault… I know that. They act up because they get too much. They don’t know what it’s like to do it tough.
So they have argued and fought all day. I have screamed and begged and pleaded with them to stop.
It came to the crunch and after the big full scale production I put on, I took every remote control, every game and every tv and put it all on the kitchen bench. This caused a LOT of screaming and crying, but eventually I won. They stopped crying and fighting and are all laying in their rooms as I write this.
Please may tomorrow be a better day…

    Good on you sometimes kids need a bit of tough love to understand things.

    At the time kids may not understand the tough love but eventually they come to & I feel when they do come to that part they love you even more for it.

    If you need some one to talk to or a shoulder to cry or anything else I'm here for you.

    (((( Hugs )))) XXXX Kisses XXXX

    Oh honey, crap days seems to last forever. Tomorrow will be a better one!

    You should see the post I write on Monday when I was going out of my brain. Haven't put it up on my blog yet, but I'm sure the next day I have a rough one I will. Sometimes the simple act of writing about it, makes you feel better.

    Mine are being downright feral. I am at my wits end. I too have taken every controller & mouse in the house. That went down well. NOT.
    Seriously being out of control at the moment. Aarggggg.

    KC it must be the moon and testosterone day. Mr3 has been an absolute tool today……I know its a growth spurt I know he's tired. I know he's testing his boundaries but I still have to teach him right from wrong no matter what the excuses behind his bad behaviour. Tomorrow will be better when he's at day care and we both have a day off from pushing each others buttons.
    Is it wrong when he says "I want" and I say in a whiny little boys voice "I want, I want, I want" too?
    Anyway in case I don't get a chance later…….my blog looks awesome thanks. Very streamlined. You Rock.

    Oh I am hearing you! Same in this house today. It has got to the point where I hear them raise their voices and instantly I raise mine "BOYS!" …… not good. Bring on school and kindy! Letitia x

    You know I have 3 boys as well so as much as I love the days where they are just perfect, there are many days that are depressing because of their fighting. I think it boils down to boredom…when we are actually on a holiday, they do not fight once.
    I find the best cure is to send a boy off to their friends house and all of a sudden, the other 2 calm right down…works every time.

    Hi Katrina I was just popping in to catch up with everthing that you have been up to. I can sooo relate to this post boys got to love them if not they would just send us insane I have been told though by many friends teenage boys are a bit easier to handle then teenage girls. So I pity my friends with teenage girls. LOL Thank you for stopping by my blog I was hoping that there was at least someone out there still following. Cheers and best wishes Linda
