Im putting my hand up today and letting you know one of my weaknesses - I throw the odd tantrum.
Sometimes they are little, but sometimes it could be compared to a toddler in a supermarket lying on the floor wanting a pack of smarties kind of one.
Just last week, I threw a medium sized one, poor Kelvin copped a text, I wasn't very nice and I wanted to quit everything.
Then this morning it was Kels turn, our daughter Summer overheard some of the phone call and was not impressed.
Summer, although used to seeing tantrums as she is one of four children, probably has not seen one from her dad. So she was quite worried and was asking me if I was ok, because dad was yelling.
This bought to my attention, that I know he wasn't yelling at me, and he knows during my tantrum last week that I wasn't attacking him - we just needed to have the blow out and vent. I didn't need Kelvin to solve anything last week, just like he didn't need me fix anything this morning - we just needed to throw a tantrum.
However, I think this is where we can get ourselves into trouble, we do take it personal. I am not by any means condoning emotional or verbal abuse, but you have to know the difference.
Sometimes we just have to be there for each other, let them throw their tantrum and just listen, Listen to understand not to reply.
