Ever felt that smack of guilt as you yell or snap at your kids? Deep down you know they're just being kids. That feeling of "parental failure" makes you feel even worse.
You know there's a better way. If you could teach your kids how to behave with a smile, every one would be much happier.
If you've ever yelled at your kids, you're not alone. And it doesn't make you a bad parent.
What's really going on? Other than habits?
One of the key components is your energy levels. Trying to help your children when your batteries are on empty doesn't work. You don't have enough energy to do it all.
And the solution to your energy levels? Is looking after yourself in a way that works for you.
Today Dr Orlena talks to Amanda Rueter.
