We all have our tough days. And it seems like over the last few months, parenting has gotten harder and harder. Admittedly, throwing a third child in the mix hasn’t helped. But more than anything, I just don’t always know how to handle the stuff that our kids throw at us.
“When you practice empathy, you can see why your child is acting the way she is. She feels like she has an ally in you when you relate to her feelings.”
“Your child’s misbehavior up to this point is a result of what she has been accustomed to. She didn’t wake up this morning behaving the way she does out of the blue.”
“Kids won’t listen when they feel disrespected….Focus instead on working together to solve a common problem.”
