Terrible Morning

Had a terrible morning with my daughter. We asked her to clean her room and it became an all out battle. She was screaming, I ttok a trash bag into her room and began throwing things away, she threw a chair and called me stupid, she got a spanking, all the wonderfully frustrating and anxiety causing moments that happen when I ask her to do anything she doesn't want to do. Finally after all that, she cleaned what was left of the mess and came to apologize. Then I made a huge mistake and she and I went shopping. It is that old "What makes me feel better" behavior and I sent her the completley wrong message. I am so regretful and wish I could go back in time and handle things differently. To top it all off I had no support from hubby. He just sat in his chair watching tv and then fell asleep!!!!!!!! I knew a the time to try and talk to him about it would just cause a fight and that would have been too much. Even now since things have calmed down I can't talk to him because he will tell me that I over-reacted and that he wasn't going to support that. I am sure that at some level I did overeact, but that is the thin line that I have such a hard time with. I wish he had helped me before it came to that.

Dani, I am sorry that you had such a rough time with Grace this morning, it sounds like what happens between me and my daughters any time I ask them to do anything. {{{{HUGS}}}}

I agree I have gone through such similar situations before with my kids. I always wish I could go back in time and redo things. We do our best but it is hard raising kids even if we weren't bipolar and triggered.
