Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

I yelled at my 5 year old because he wrote his 'a' backwards, his 'd' upside down, and his 'W' was diagonal no matter how many times I walked him through how to write them. He does them fine at school though. I need more patience. :'( Poor baby was crying...

  • One more thing, I wasn't so much frustrated with him as I was with myself. We never get his homework in on time and there's a treat every Monday if you do. I felt terrible that we never could get it done in two days so he never got the treat. I felt like a failure because I couldn't help him. Had a conference with his teacher a few days ago and she gave him some exceptions and me some advice, which is what led me to sign up for that parenting class.

  • I know it's wrong that I yelled. That's why I confessed. I apologized to him. I felt like a complete failure. He's the most amazing little man in the world and I love him so much. But no, my impatience is not the reason he has a harder time at home. It's because I don't know what I'm doing. I'm learning with him. He's my first born. His teachers know what they're doing, they have experience. I'm going to take a parenting class this Spring to help me learn how to help him.
