Hi all! This is my very first post. I'm sleep deprived, sore boobed, and a little sad. Our little girl who's almost four has absolutely changed after we had out baby girl a few weeks ago. She's never done anything to hurt her or never says she hates her etc.. and takes pride in helping, but she's been throwing some raging fits. Hitting, screaming, yelling... small things set her off. It's taking a toll on me. We *never* yell, and have a very firm but loving discipline style (that always used to work, but not so much lately). She's a very high spirited kid as it is- very energetic, a little unfocused at times, extremely fun loving. I don't know why but I feel like a failure as a parent. Does this get better? Have any of you been through this before? What did you do to cope with it?
