So- My darling husband has been in bed for 10 days out of the last 12. My two children have been yelled at for being too noisy, not going to sleep, not staying in their beds, at least daily......what do I tell them? They are aware that Dad is crook- they are 5 and 3. But it is not fair for him to yell- they don't understand..... They are engaging in what I assume is normal behaviour- fighting with each other, arguing over toys, television programs, where to sit at the dinner table.....but to a sick man in bed, it seems like it is WW3. A fine line I have to tread so I look to support him, but absolutely disagree with yelling and irrational threats to them.... Any advice?
