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.
