My daughter is only 3 and my son is 2yrs. He is very mean, like ot pick on my daughter all the time and always wants me to hold him. I won't hold him all he time and when I don't all he does is cry and throw a fit. My daughter is really good, usually listens really good which is why I dont' know why I get so angry when she doesn't listen. For example bed time is a struggle. She will get up time and time again, crying she wants to stay up, she doens't want to go to bed. I have tried telling her she will get a spanking, I have tried everything I can think of. I usually read her a story before turning off the lights but one in a while I let her watch tv right before bedtime and then lights out but then she wants a story after I clearly tell her that IF she chooses to watch TV I will not read a story. Anyways, she keeps pushing and pushing to stay up until I loose my temper. I feel my face turn red, heart beating fast, I get out fo breathe like I'm running. I dont' know what to do. I start yelling and have spanked her a couple times. I don't want to be this way,please help me!!
