My boys are in a weird phase. They are being rebellious, but not all the time. It’s so off that it makes handling the situation hard. I am not sure what to do. From little things like ignoring simple requests to full blown yelling at me. And I will be honest- I have lost it a few times in those moments and yelled back.
It just seems so unbelievable to me that they would behave this way. Then I think they act like me. I mean I yelled so they yell. My family is loud and yelling is normal talk most days.
I have really made it my resolution to work on this and honestly I’m quite proud of myself that I have done a great job squashing this. It has been such a huge effort for me and recently it seems like a power struggle is going on.
I know this is normal and happens throughout childhood but goodness I’m over it!
If you have any good tricks please share. I am not desperate or anything and like I said it’s not an everyday let alone every week kind of thing. I just don’t have time for it! Ha!
