I`m a single parent with 3 children aged 14, 12 and 9. i have a brain injury from when i had a car crash at 3 years old. I feel like a failure as a mum, and am tired all the time, more so as the summer holidays are here. the children live with me, and only see their dad 4 evenings a week, at the moment cause he started a full time job in July. I over-react to things and shout at the children, more so when I`m tired or frustrated, I do have my mum to help and a family friend but only see these people once a week. I try to have naps in the day which helps and the children behave well, I`m just struggling at the moment and cry a lot too
