I take care of my 18mths old boy myself. Sometimes its really very tired, even complain to my husband i really wish i could have a day off. But its just like venting out my anger, if really give me a day off, i dont bear to leave my boy . Haha.
I'm 24mths pregnant now. Its really tired especially need to take care of a toddler and cook for him, but you see, as the time passes, its really not tired already, maybe get use to it already.
I did shout at my son. Cause if i talk nicely to him, he not scare. But when i shout, he will realise he's wrong n stop doing whatever he is doing.
As for slap on the face, i did once. Cause he put coin in his mouth, then my reaction was slap his mouth so he open his mouth for me to take the coin out. And from that, he know cannot anyhow put things inside.
Just to share my story
