I can get my ds2 and dd to stop crying and screaming at me and get through the day without feeling as though it would be easier to slash my wrists.... dd has got a fever and ds2 is teething. I havent slept all night and I havent eaten for 3 days.....please make them shut up............

Can someone come over and give you a break ? where are you?

1st things 1st. get a cuppa and some food down your throat.

then rub teethjing gel on ds2 gums and give him sdome calpol, same for dd. then pop them down in front of the tv with a favourite video and a blanket each.

what's the weather like? it's lovely here could you take them out for a bit?

bubbly1973 Wed 16-Mar-05 15:25:15

what if you put them in the bath for a bit, might pass half an hour away??

i hope they stop crying for you, but if they dont, just put them somewhere where they cant harm themselves, go in a room and take a breather for a bit just to get some energy back...10mins break will do u wonder

FIL fetched ds1 from school for me. when they got here ds1 was nothing but naughty, throwing things around, yelling at me that he hates me and wishes I was dead, hitting his grandad, winding poorly dd up when she was just trying to get to sleep, and he slammed the stairgate so hard he has broken it FIL has just left and ds1 has just had the telling off of his life....why does he always have to be so naughty when the inlaws are here??? I have told him that if he behaves in that way again I will tell grandad not to come round anymore. dd is still poorly. ds2 seems a bit better. Think the calpols kicked in. DH will be home late tonight as well.....

Shout/Vanish carpet cleaner?
try being v positive and praise ds when he does something "good", see if he responds. atm it seems as if he's only getting any "attention" (albeit shouty stuff) when he's naughty. tried this with dd1 when she had a few behaviour problems and regressed re: potty training around time dd2 was born and it worked wonders

Titania Thu 17-Mar-05 14:03:05

you think that would work with SIL???

charleepeters Thu 17-Mar-05 14:08:42

W have been where you are and sometimes its just best to put them both somewhere you know they will be safe i.e playpen, cot and just leave them for 10mins and sit down for a while to breath and de stress, if anyone can help you ask them it will help xox {{{hugs}}}

bundle Thu 17-Mar-05 14:10:08

yes, shout/vanish for kids
behavioural therapy for sil

/slap wrist for not eating for 3 days

sleep deprivation sends you gaga
not eating sends you gaga

the combination is blecccccch

shovel some bread and cheese down you or bread and peanut butter or something if no time to eat lunch/breakfast whatever

Chocolate - the answer to everything. Give some to the kids and the rest to yourself and just have a nice treat time. Amazing what a bit of chocolate will do and it's not toooooo bad for you/them...

Totally need to eat, something carby.

Can anyone babysit for you? Do you know any responsible young people, or family?
