What are your plans for the new year? Parenting is something really important to think about for 2018!
Do you have plans to better your parenting? Every year there is always something you can do to better your parenting. Think about it!
One thing I always told myself for the new year was to really enjoy those “aggravating” moments…LOL What do I mean? Let’s face it, there are many moments that exhaust us as parents; many moments that make us feel angry or “aggravated” about whatever our child or children are doing/saying.
…Maybe some of these moments can be looked at differently?
…Maybe they will not get us upset as much as they used to?
…Maybe we can try to enjoy some of those moments and perhaps ask ourselves, “What can I find humorous in this situation? What do I want my child to learn from this experience? How can I teach them something instead of yelling at them or getting annoyed?”
…Can we have a new perspective to parenting this year than ever before? Is this at all possible?
Each new year can bring a new parenting skill, ability, patience level, and/or strategy. Once we have truly reflected on what was achieved or what was not achieved the previous year, then and only then, we can change for the upcoming year.
Try it! Let me know what you come up with…let’s share! 🙂
