"Last cookie," you say, lightly.
"No." Your son says. Then he stuffs the cookie into his mouth, grabs three more and runs from the room.
You're just about to charge from the kitchen in a chase when your eyes fall on another set of eyes.
Your younger son.
Wide-eyed and wondering.
Who's in charge here? his eyes seem to say.
How far can we push you? Are you going to...lose it?
This week we're talking the kid that pushes your buttons...and the brothers and sisters who are watching.
How does what you say or do in the heat of the moment reflect on them?
Abigail shares a big win when she got her over-tired tween to bed early, despite his resistance at every opportunity. But what surprised her most was how her younger son responded.
Listen in and feel inspired if you:
You'll see how your responses can impacts everyone in your house - including you! And why it pays to keep positive with your children in ways you might not imagine.
