People with a short temper will find it very hard to take care of a speech delayed kid. No matter how much positive self talk you do, you’ll always end up frustrated with your kid at some point.
Unfortunately if you have a short temper, you need to resolve your own issues first. Counting from 1 to 100 will not help you in this case.
Seriously consider enrolling in an anger management program. There is no trick to this.
Shouting at your kid won’t do any good. Anger will only create a wall between you and your kid, too.
If you don’t have any access to any anger management programs in your area, then the only way is to distance yourself from your kid from time-to-time. You can do this by hiring a baby sitter once or twice a week. I know that this is easy to do in developed countries.
For people in developing countries, this is where your relationship with your family gets tested. You can ask your relatives to take care of your kid for an hour or so a week while you try to recharge and cool down.
There really is no substitute for your own therapy to help yourself be a better person. But you need to do it even if you just don’t have the time, money, and inclination for therapy.
When it comes to our kids, everything that will help us improve will also help them improve.
