I am praying for whatever it takes to be kinder to my children, even when they are at their worst driving me insane. I do not need to be the same parent that I had, I do not need to name-call and belittle them in order to get my point across. I do not need to scream, yell or otherwise lose control of myself to be the boss. I can acheive success without making them feel inferior, stupid and/or unloved. Ok, so I know all this stuff, feel guilty as you-know-what, now all I need is divine intervention to actually reach my goal. HELP!
Try a book
Good book called “New Parent Power” by John Rosemond. He is on PBS often giving parenting advice. He is very good and you can get his book at the library. I strongly recommend it. It gives creative ways to discipline without getting angry.
