Steph.

Stop.
Take a deep breath.

Are you mad at somebody in particular? Or the entire family? As dd says, "Mom, it's not fair ... when you're upset with Daddy or David, you yell at me".

ETA:I found it was easier if I asked for specific help: "J, could you please cook dinner on Wed. night"; "L, please set the table each night"; "D, please keep your bathroom downstairs clean." Then we could discuss the job or whatever.

Good luck.
