It’s currently 17:47 and I’m at the end of the never-ending tether.
I’ve lost my shit so much I have no shit left to lose.
I’m hitting a desperate stage; I don’t know what to do anymore.
I’ve read every bloody article and online advice forum I can find.
I’ve tried every method of discipline I can think of.
And I can’t believe for one moment that this is just a fucking phase.
My child is horrible. And I don’t feel guilty saying it.
Of course I love him – but he is vile in every way, shape and form.
He whinges. Non. Stop.
He won’t go near the potty; yet everyone tells me he should be potty trained.
He won’t eat whatever I put in front of him. He won’t even sit at the table and try.
He rips, shreds, and breaks anything he can lay his little hands on.
He doesn’t listen to a word I say. He shouts and screams at me.
He pinches and hits me. He knows what he is doing – when I tell him off he laughs.
He’s destroying my house – he trashes every room he enters and doesn’t listen when I tell him its bad.
He won’t let me change him; or dress him. He just kicks up a stink and won’t cooperate.
My beautiful, happy, affectionate little man has turned into a living nightmare.
I don’t know what to do anymore. I can’t cope. And I’m pretty sure he feeds off my inability to cope.
I’m so tired and I feel so unhappy; how the hell do I get through this?
