Have you ever woken up in the morning and vowed to yourself that you are going to make it A GREAT DAY? And then, 10 minutes later, your kids are bickering over who got the best bowl, homework is missing, and you can't find your purse?
And it's like, seriously?!! What happened?
And it continues like that, on a downward spiral, all through the day.
Worrying about getting to school on time, sniping at your children who are sniping at each other, bribing a kid to take a class, threatening a kid to EAT SOMETHING, yelling at a kid to get IN THE SHOWER.
Forget happier, peaceful, supportive parenting! At this point, you don't much like your kids. You don't like the way you handled things so you don't even like yourself. There doesn't feel much to be happy about!
And then you get into bed and wonder - how am I going to face all that again tomorrow?
But what if you could change that? What if you could go to bed content in being the parent you are, confident in the decisions you made.
Happier, because you own your parenting?
That's what we're talking about on the podcast today. Owning your parenting means making decisions based on your own family's needs, and feeling empowered not powerless when moments get sticky.
Owning your parenting means, ultimately, being a happier parent and in this episode, Elle and Abigail talk about how to get to that point.
We find out:
Parenting is tough, but when we can own parenting, we can remain strong, sure and secure when our kids put us through our paces.
And when we own our parenting, we can love them fiercely, no matter what.
What could be happier than that?
