To yell or not to yell... or just scream....

Kids. One minute they melt your heart, the next thing you know they are jumping on your bed while munching some biscuits. Argh…..!!!

Let’s concentrate on the first one, Iman. I guess his name does carry its own weight. The truth, I must be beriman enough to let an hour pass by without getting mad at him, let alone scream or pinch him.

Yep… it’s not an understatement whatsoever. This had been approved by friends and family. I’m confused. I did overreacted a few times. By then, it’s too late to feel sorry. Pity him. But then again he really tests my patience. I do love him… so much it makes me cry…

I’ve tried all sorts of tactics. It hardly works. Only one thing…. Screammmm…. So that he’ll know that I’m serious. You can call him hyperactive but he’s smart and always cunning. He’s so much into computer games. What should I do? I’m tired of all this screaming and yelling and stuff. I want him to listen to me… obey me as his mother. Is it too much to ask?

He’s just a 7 year old boy who needs attention. Maybe he doesn’t get enough for his sister is just a year younger. What about his needs? I’m trying very best to understand him. The more I tried the harder it gets. Am I a bad mother? Is it normal to feel this way towards him? Whatever happens, he’s still my boy. I’m proud of him, no doubt about that. I know it’ll take years to come before he’ll settle down.

we had a common by going through all these. I had the same situation and sometimes much harder ahen hubby was not around. Maybe we can share our story together so that we will not keep it to ourselves until it burst out and make things getting worst. hehehe...

Thanx for understanding effa. Life could be harsh sometimes but then again we can always turn to Allah for anything rite! I just hope and pray that Iman eventually will not be too difficult to handle. Insyaallah...

The other day while driving Iman n Nana to school, Iman couldn't find his wallet. As usual he insisted that I turn back to the house to search for it and I refused. Bila sampai sekolah, he just went out of the car without even salam n kiss me (the rituals) and ran to the school. I was taken aback...
Noon, I was in the car waiting for him and Nana. He came running and openned the car door and grabbed my hand and kissed it many times...he said sorry ibu... lain kali Iman tak buat lagi. Sebak....
