Parenting during tantrums 

We have been doing this “Gentle Parenting” thing for most of our kid’s lives and sometimes it’s just awful. And I just want to throw something at a wall. And yell. And discipline like my parents did.

But then my kid melts into my arms after a violent tantrum saying “I just need you to hold me right now” and I know it’s working.

Just thoughts after coming down from an especially tough evening.

@Megra3 I have more days like this than not. So many times repeating “that must be so frustrating” and “those are big feelings.” I do think it’s working. But wow, is it ever hard, and all-consuming.
