Baby steps! I had an awesome parenting moment yesterday when I held my tongue — I’m sure it’s one of the lessons this week lol! — and found our last dry erase marker with the lid off, 4 hours after my son got discouraged and stormed out of the schoolroom. Instead of getting angry and telling him/shaming him, I just put the lid back on and hoped for the best. I stopped and remembered that he is going to beat himself up and negative self-talk himself anyways if he knew, why would I want to bring it to his attention?! So thank you Big Life Journal for this week - even if I’m behind, I already used something that I learned, and that makes me a better mom and my son a happier kid! For Sarah Rosensweet: Thank you so much! So helpful! I cringe when I hear the phrase ‘our voice becomes their inner voice’ because I make so many mistakes and say so many things that I know have not been helpful (definitely out of fear and when triggered - my son can push my buttons like no one else can! ). Thank you for the ‘Stop, Drop and Breath’ phrase! I’m going to try to use that. I love my kids so much and ALWAYS want them to feel worthy & lovable!
Thank you so much Big Life Journal and the experts for taking the time to help out us parents. I have enjoyed, learned, and relearned things to help not just myself, but my kids.
Thank you for providing so many wonderful AND concrete examples!
This is heavy-weight stuff in the “positive sense”! So much to keep on trying and to keep on learning! So inspiring!
Thank you so much to all of you to share your struggles!!!! It gives me strength and a sense that I am not alone in this journey
