Re: How do you control youself IN THE MOMENT?

I think we all have to put ourselves in a time out as parents!  I'm the Mom of 3 and boy there are days when I feel like a referee!  I've been known to go to my room or bathroom and just take a deep breath to compose myself.  I try not to let myself get caught up in the chaos or the yelling because it just snowballs from there.  If it's a moment when myself or my husband are really upset with one of the kids about a specific thing, we will send that child to their room while we discuss how to handle it so when we talk with him/her, we have ourselves composed.
