When it comes to your kids, you can’t control them. You can only control you. You can imagine all you want them to be, do and have. You can wish and hope and cajole. You can nag and scold, and punish.
In your experience, what changes when you do these things?
I know from my life and work experience – what changes is your stress level.
You become more stressed, because all the wishing and hoping and lecturing you invest, will not bring about change in your child.
|If only you could control them with a push of a button!
You know it. Change comes from within. So what can you do to support positive changes in your child while keeping your sanity and restoring something like peace in your home?
