Mommy Guilt

When I read She’s Gonna Blow, I remember thinking that all the stuff about Mommy guilt wasn’t really my issue. I feel loads of guilt when I screw up, but I usually try to right the situation as quickly as possible and deal with the guilt so that it isn’t lingering and becoming part of a cycle of behavior. I do see that changing a bit as I am still struggling with eliminating angry outbursts. I just read a NY Times article Shouting is the New Spanking and found it very interesting and sadly very true in my personal experience and with many of my friends. I know that I yell when I get frustrated and run out of other ideas, especially when I am tired or hungry. They say that knowing is half the battle, so the other half is… fighting?
