We appreciate our children being open to us and talking about things that bother them. But this is the situation that is getting us upset, when we hear them talk-back. Like you, I have been experiencing too much stress hearing my child answering-back whenever I discipline her for something wrong she did, it started when my older child was eight-year old.
I am really troubled how I can regulate her. It really made lose my temper that sometimes I cannot help but mildly hit her. Still, that hitting did not give her a lesson to learn to avoid her being like that again. The “answering-back” is made worst by her unruly look – eyes piercingly-sharp matched with her creasing forehead. Who will not explode, if you are the mother seeing and hearing your youngster that way?
