She posted a photograph of her youngest son Calvin giving her a book about managing anger and alongside it she wrote: "It's time to take a step back and regroup when your son hands you this book and tells you to read it. I try to keep it together but sometimes the lack of sleep and sheer amount of responsibilities right now make it hard.
