It’s not hard.
It’s not even stressful.
It’s just what you have to do. Every morning the sun rises and the time ticks by and by the end of the day comes when the sun goes down, we are through one day and on to the next.
What happens in between sun up and sun down is completely up to you. Who you want to be as a parent, how you want your kids to see you, how you manage your ups and downs with your kids is completely up to you.
This doesn’t always happen the way we want because we are tired, or busy, but my challenge to you is this…
…Think about how you want to get through each day. If you think about parenting then it is easier to follow through. If you remind yourself at different points of the day who you want to be, and how you want to get through the day then it is possible to do that – no matter what your kids throw at you.
- think about HOW you want to get through the day
- remind yourself ( phone notification for example) a couple of times a day
- follow through
PS – if you are struggling to follow through with what you want to be it could be because you have depleted energy – get in touch if you want help with identifying, or improving, this.
