Just turned 21. I have a 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. I feel very overwhelmed and in over my head. I need advice. I need to talk to someone who I can relate to.

Two kids can be really hard to juggle. Everyone gets overwhelmed.



Are there specific things that you're having trouble with? What exactly is going on? I'm sure everyone on here is willing to listen and understands how hard taking care of kids can be.



The one thing I always do when I feel overwhelmed is try to take a breath and a step back. Just give yourself a moment to breath.



I also try to make sure I've got at least one or two things I do a week just for ME. Not mommy me, but ME ME. I get a babysitter and do soccer once a week. I'm actually really bad but I find it helps me be social, get some physical activity, and makes me feel more refreshed when I come home to my kids. Everyone needs a break.



Anyway, like I said, tell us what's going on and maybe we can help.



Take out some baby photos of your kids, that helps me feel better when mine starts acting up :)
