All parents get frustrated at times. And some of us lose patience more often than we’d like.
Feeling angry and managing our negative emotions in positive and healthy ways can give us the chance to set a good example for our children. Calm parents are better at helping children handle frustration.
Have you ever been upset with yourself about how you behaved as a parent during periods of frustration?
Do you do find that when you have a 'good day' your kids have 'a good day' as well?
Did you notice that when you have an emotional day your children mirror that? It's almost as if when it rains it pours.
Children feed on our emotions and we at times feed off of theirs.
Parenting is hard. Recent studies show that parents agree raising children nowadays is more difficult than in the past generations. One major reason is the sheer expectation we have to "get it right" based on a given parenting approach, another is the pressure we put on ourselves to be the "perfect parent" while balancing many different demands including work, family time, household chores, children's activities, and social activities.
The next time frustration occurs, try one of the ideas shared during this International Parenting Summit going live April 10th and 11th.
I hope you can join us.

I read at night when putting the kids to sleep. When do you like to read?
