For a split second, yelling at my threenager feels good or somehow cleansing—but I immediately regret it

From time to time, parents like to indulge in a game I’ll loosely call: What phase of parenting is the most difficult? Raising teenagers is no fun, some of my friends will tell me. Also watch out for the blind intermediate phase, others will add. “Nothing beats the newborn stage, does it?” I bid. It’s been a pretty deadly couple of months; the insomnia and the silent terrors and the culture shock and the attempts to breastfeed and the feedings and the crying and the worry of accidentally breaking them? And yet, like a very discerning Tripadvisor reviewer (three stars), I watch videos on my phone of my newborn asleep, not moving, or simply watching his new pad, and things look very peaceful and under control . On the other hand, I look back at these videos while a three year old lives in my house. No wonder it looks peaceful.

or I am more convinced than any other belief I have ever had that the three-rodent phase is by far the greatest challenge I have had to face on this winding, arduous path of parenthood.
