I was hoping on some advice. Im going to have my 2nd child next month. My first is 2 going on 3 and it feels like i've lost a hold of him..only cause it seems more like im losing myself. I want to feel like we're bonded REALLY..I mean i love him.. he loves me..but its hard to focus on parenting when you have life coming at you in all kinds of ways. He's an active kid, he give me the run around alot, which im sure is common at this age..I feel like Im saying no no no all the time..and being pregnant right now makes my patience short..I get really frustrated (and I show it) I just want to know what other moms do with their children? what are the steps to affective disipline? how does everyone else deal with frustration and how should i go about building a stong healthy relationship with him again??
