Being a parent gives you some of the most rewarding moments of your life; however, the inescapable truth is that being a parent is tough. In that moment when you are covered in dirty laundry, the sink is filled to the brim with dirty dishes, and your children seem to be in some kind of “who can be the loudest” contest, knowing the reason behind their actions does
not matter as much as getting them to stop. It can be easier for you to release your frustrations by yelling at your little angels to just stop, or perhaps to take away their video games, Barbie, or some other item they enjoy. What is the usual reaction here? Do your
children thank you profusely for showing them the light? Or do they pout and stomp off
creating more anxiety in your already hectic life?
