The guilt of ‘ Why’
Why did I shout at my little one? I often question myself.
Being a parent is not easy. It involves giving up your time and trying to manage your little one’s tantrums that they decide to throw at the oddest of times. It is all this that really makes us lose patience and end up taking it all out on our little ones.
This happens to me most of the times and then I ask myself – how could I do this? The constant tiredness and not been able to get ‘me’ time sometimes gets to me.
The way I have started overcoming this, is by balancing my work life– I ensure to spend my mornings with my daughter without even looking at my phone for emails and do the same post work till the time she is goes to sleep. I still do not get my ‘me’ time. My daughter still throws all the toddler tantrums. However, I have to say that the frustration levels have gone down drastically and I also get to spend time playing with my daughter.
