I am aware that this is a site for mothers but i need motherly advice. I am a 24 y/o soldier and my wife is a 21 stay at home mom(not her choice). We have a beautiful and extremely smart 10 month old girl who is advanced. She started walking and saying the common words in the past month. So my issue is this. My wife was never an angry person 3 years ago when we got married, but since the middle of the pregnancy and even more after the birth, she has such a short fuse and when she snaps, she snaps. It is near every day that she is yelling at our daughter for whinning or not sitting still or stupid stuff. she will be changing her diaper and will be yelling while directly looking at her or she will be frustrated with something else and will take it out on her by telling her to get the hell away and go bug your daddy for a change. It doesnt sound like much but i have been around mothers all my life considering the fact that my brother is an MNU RN and I did some clinical rounds with them. I when i talk to her about it she says that every mother does it and she doesnt have a problem. Just last night, our daughter was really tired and didnt want to be rocked and didnt want to be alone. When ever my wife would set her in her crib she would start screaming. after 20 minutes of this, she yelled at her, "You want to cry? I will let you cry all night!" and slammed the door stomping away. the reason she was frustrated to begin with was because I didnt get what she wanted on may way home from work. Maybe I am wrong.
