Guilt after shouting at my children and moving out the way

Postby Rosegirl09 » Wed Apr 26, 2017 7:15 pm

I was under a lot of stress last week (im pregnant as well) I also suffer with anxiety so not sure if this is to do with the guilt side also. I shouted badly at my children they were fighting over a box and both were yelling at each other and crying and with me being in a very bad mood already I ended up screaming at them both I then grabbed my toddlers arm and shouted at her then I told my son whos 6 to get away from her and the box as it was making them both angry. I pushed him out the room and apparently I dug my nails into him which I didnt mean to do. then later he was complaining of his tablet not working so i tried to sort it i threw it back onto his bed but it bounced and hit him on the chest |(i think) which i feel very guilty for.

I feel awful I was already stressed by something else happening but feel its no excuse. I know its wrong to loose my temper like this and im trying to find ways to be more calm under stress. Does anybody think im an awful parent? I have said sorry to both my children and my son who understands says its ok and he loves me ect. but still doesnt stop me from feeling guilty.

btw I rarely get angry at them like this.

Don't beat yourself up about this. You know what you did wasn't the right way to deal with it and you learn from it and move on and do better next time . I'm a mother of 3 children and I'm also pregnant and suffer from a few mental disorders and at times I yell at the kids and have done some things I'm not proud of. But I make sure not to act that way again. I know you posted this a while ago, so hope you're feeling better now.
