Sit down tonight and ask yourself these questions:
– When did you successfully parent the way you wanted to today?
– When did you stay calm and react the way you wanted, or refrain from reacting?
– What moments can you take pride in?
Instead of focusing on all the times you really screwed up today, do something good for yourself and revel in your victories, no matter how few or how small.
Write them down.
Be proud of yourself.
And keep your eyes open for more opportunities to succeed
In your interactions tomorrow.
Well done parent. Well done.
