Hi,I'm new to all this, but here goes, nowhere else to turn! I am mum to four boys and at the moment it seems like they all need me for something-I just can't manage to be there for all of them!!!When there is noone there for me.....

Sorry to hear you're feeling down. I only have one boy to contend with, so I can't even comprehend looking after four. You have my respect.
Anyway afraid I have no pearls of wisdom for you but can send you a big cyber ((((hug))))
We are here for you, whenever you need to rant.
Take care of yourself

Hi ppange

Welcome to the site, looks like you have found us just at the right time.

As Hells has said there is always someone one here to listen, support or make you laugh and it really does make things seem easier to cope with, only problem is that it can become very addictive

I'm Elaine and live in West Yorkshire with my 7 year old son, and he can be handful on his own

Hope you find the site both fun and useful

Elaine

hi ppange

like hells said you come on here. rant, cry, ask for advice or just to get a hug - vitual though i may be there is always someone willing to give you a shoulder to cry on. everyone is so friendly and will do their utmost to help anyway they can. try and get yourself to some meets, with 4 boys i know that can't be easy organise , i have one and its a handful!!!


i'm based in bristol, you're south wales , maybe not too far away.....could always meet up if you like, don't have a car but train is easy to get to places. i bet you are doing a fantastic job

best thing to do is exactly what you have done - come on here! next thing on the list to do is not beat yourself up about whether you are coping etc. The very fact that you are asking yourself what to do shows you are a caring and loving parent - nobody can divide themselves into segments and you will never please all the boys all the time.  so the third thing to do is give yourself a break and come on here xx
