I am a stay at home mom of two children 5 and 3. I am married and have been with my husband since I was 17 and I am 24 now. I have been feeling loads and loads of anxiety, day to day mainly from bad behavior from my children.
My oldest is in school and my three year old stays home. I love these kids more than life itself, but it seems here lately its just a complete circus.
My husband and I haven’t been getting along much lately and I am seeking some sort of woman advice.
I have not finished college, I have not worked since I was about 18 because I had my daughter.
I have been feeling very down about myself
It seems as if everything I have done has been a failure. I love being a stay at home mom to my kids but its very trying at times. My daughter seems to be acting out and intentionally whining and doing exactly what I tell her not to do.
My husband and I tend to go out on most weekends and have drinks with our friends and hang out etc. I told him we should slow down the hanging out and spend more time together as a family.
Its very hard to be young and stay at home with children. I hate to whine and complain to friends because I feel like I am being judged because the majority of my friends do work.
Everyone knows a stay at home mom does nothing
I also have been trying to talk to my husband about home-schooling because I am not very impressed with the children my kids will be in school with and I want to make sure they can learn as much for their future. Also another disagreement with my husband.
With my kids its been like a three ring circus, even if its running to the grocery store, bath time, dinner time you name it and it has been HORRIBLE.
We spank and we also do time out, kind of alternating between both depending on what the behaviour was.
I just want an outlook on discipline and being a stay at home mom and how you handle the bad days and if anyone home schools and still has horrible days?
