I don't know what the hell i have done but i think i have raised two nightmare kids.

I am seriously at the end of my tether with their arguments and complaints among other things

It has got to the point where i am looking at them and thinking you know what i don't like your personalities.

I wish the bloody school would re-open and the worst thing is they have obviously got a crap mother to go with their crap behaviour or else i would not have just typed that

how old are they?

Oh dear, bad day then. If it makes you feel better, mine are monsters too.

Dd1 (7), told me she hates everything I cook.

Dd2 (5) hid half a cigarette in her pocket from the boy next door.

Ds (2.8) Keeps telling me to shut up mom.

why when all the other kds are outside playing happily are mine in the house driving me insane?
aaaaaaaaaaaargh they are horrid

I've had a week like that too - DD is 2.8 and is constantly whinging (sp?) and complaining - i just feel like the worst mum ever cos she seems to be so grumpy and unhappy

I'm thinking of standing outside the School with a banner saying

"OPEN NOW OR ELSE"!!!!!!!!!

Well I lost one of my charges yesterday when I took my dd and her best friend out. First time this has ever happened. Three minutes of complete and utter panic. Then we had just got over that and dd kicked her friend in the head.

peaceandlight, in spite of my experiences yesterday, I do think it is a good idea for you to take the kids out if you get the chance to.

My daughter (2.8) cried when I picked her up from nursery yesterday.

It's awful when you come to the realisation that your child can be horrible. I took dd aged 4 to stay with friend with a dd aged 2. Omg, my dd is the she devil, she was spiteful, jealous and nasty. What made it worse is my friend is a great follower of child behaviour books and runs her house like a military boot camp. Half of the problem was that we were so restricted in what we did because we trapped there without a car and had to keep coming home to fit in with friends dd routine. I felt stressed and had to keep telling dd, dont do this, dont do that you will wake ??. I realised what was happening and decided to lay off and distract but it was too late dd had got it into her head that she hated ?? and behaved appallingly all under the watchful eye of the spawn of gina Ford, who even offered me tips, AAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH, I nearly chinned her. The only solace was thinking to myself wait until yours can talk and starts forming her own opinions. Sorry rant over, just wanted to sympathise as it's truly horrible when you kids decide to be little devils.

I truely think the summer holidays are way too long. If we had 2 weeks at each half term and only 3 weeks in the summer everyone would feel better.....it's just TOO long

knowing you have another 4 weeks is soul destrying

Im in a bit of a conumdrum, as a teacher, I have same hols as dd and I dont want to go back to work but on the other hand it would be lovely if I could have some of my holidays on my own. It doesnt always feel like a holiday, god i'm selfish. Luckily this morning dh is off so hes taken dd out on her bike, bliss!
