Is shouting and having a bad temper makes me a bad mother?
I love my 4 year old son so much that if i could give him the world, i would! I always make him milk every morning and night because it's good for him. I always say i love you and i always give him hugs and kisses. I always find myself worrying about his future and talking to his dad about his education and about which private school he is going to attend to after preschool, high-school and college. I always give him the things that he needs and the things that he wants that i can afford. I love him so much with all my heart but is taking good care of him enough for me to be called a good mother?
My child is very hyperactive, he doesn't really listen when i say or ask him something, he just doesn't pay attention and MOST of the time i find myself shouting and raising my voice at him whenever he does something that i do not like or agree.
I have a bad temper and most of the time i cannot really control it and i always feel guilty whenever i shout at him which sometimes keeps me awake at night. I always think that I am a BAD mother because i lack patience and i often shout.
Please Help! I just need honest answers. I'm just worried that my shouting will have a very bad effect on my son. I just do not want him to say someday that I am a bad mom. I'm scared that he will only see my negative side.
