Can I have a private post please?
Feeling like a shit mum right now. Took my son (nearly 2) to Tesco earlier and he had the biggest meltdown over an orange. When I told him to move and said to him let’s go and get some bread he screamed (in the highest pitch you can imagine), threw the scan as you shop handset and was hitting me. To make matters worse we saw people who live nearby and they were looking, I was so embarrassed. To top all that off I had people staring at me and looking at me in disgust because of how my son was behaving. He wanted a toy out of there but because of how naughty he was he didn’t get one so that started it off again. When we got home he just continued to misbehave so I took him to his room and laid him in his bed he calmed down quite quickly surprisingly. When he had calmed down I explained it to him that he was put in his room because of the way he behaved and that’s why he didn’t get a toy. I just feel he is like this just for me, he never behaves like it for my parents and I just don’t know where I’m going wrong. I never get told that what I’m doing is right and that I’m doing a good job (not that I want praise just a reassurance that I’m doing ok) and am just feeling so fed up. I don’t know what the point of this post is maybe just to know that I’m not alone and it’s not just my son who behaves like this. Sorry for the long post I’m a first time mum. Thanks x
