I was mean to my daughter this morning.

I've been a bad mom for the last few days. I have been feeling angry for a variety of reasons, mostly life pressure, and my daughter, age 9, told me this morning that she thought I was overeacting to the inconvenience of houseguests. (I had lost my temper with the guests.) She told me she thought I was overeacting just before I dropped her off at school. I walked away without saying good-bye. I have never done that before. As I was leaving, I walked back to apologize to her. Another mom saw me and told me how upset my daughter was. I went into the school and found her and apologized. But she pushed me away, which I certainly deserved. I have damaged our relationship. I feel just awful. Please help.

first I would like to say hi there and my name is Taketa. I also would like to let you know that you are not a bad mother. You are completely human and no ONE is perfect at all. So I think its okay to feel bad about what you didn't say and how you reacted because it shows you care about your actions. however stopping yourself and trying to make things right is always a great way to make something you did wrong right and your daughter may be upset at the moment but will also learn what to do if she hurts someone she cares about and you are being an example so give yourself some credit and move forward you love your child and that's shows!!!
