If you are going through a financial crisis, be aware of the warning signs that indicate you may be ready to blow up at your kids. Feelings of depression, insomnia and being short of patience with your kids are all signs that you may need to seek out help.
Basically, when the little things your kids do to annoy you start to feel like major infractions, step back and take a deep breath. Remember that they're little kids, and they don't understand the pressures grown-ups feel during these tough times.
I know my patience is always a little short when the numbers in the checking account get lower and lower as the month goes by. By trying to protect our kids, we often don't give them enough credit. While you don't want to scare them, there's nothing wrong with a little honesty. Let them know you're stressed out.
And the best advice? Walk away and give yourself a time-out.
Do you feel your temper rising during times of economic hardship?
