We are all human and when we are tired, it makes everything worse. Our reaction is to lash out and the closest one nearest, gets it in the ear. We have to learn that this is not the greatest way to handle difficult situations. Also, it doesn’t give a positive behaviour image for our children. If we lash out in anger they will mirror your reaction in this way in the future situations. Your behaviour can and will be replicated from generation to generation. Whereas if we manage to control our emotions enough to make sense of the situation, we would find that the outcome would be a positive beneficial one. Remember we are mentors for our children and for those we meet and work with. Be kind to yourself and others.
