Susana Maria - posted on 02/09/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




Ok I'm a first time mom and a stay at home mom and my daughter is almost 1 1/2. Now I have never even thought of spanking or any kind of physical discipline for a child I have always been against it! But ok my boyfriend is always working so its always just me and my LO and today while I was changing er diaper she did something asked her not to do and I smacked her on the arm a little harder than I meant to! I feel like the worst mother ever please I just want to know if anyone can relate to this and maybe have any words of wisdom...and please no judgment I know what I did was wrong and I'm never going to do it again. Thank you.

You're not the worst mother ever, but try to control your temper. Count to 10 and breathe deep breaths before you react to anything. Kids are going to push your buttons all the time. It will take patience and understanding. You teach by your actions, so you have to be a role-model of how you want them to act.
