(Inside: How you can tell your kids DO listen to you even in the struggle.)
My two older sons were at ski club and they overheard a boy talking about how he was hungry for dinner but didn’t have any money. So they took the money I gave them and divided it three ways.
Moms, our kids are listening to us. They are learning the lessons we try so hard to teach.
If you’re struggling right now with parenting, hang on. In between “Go to your room and think about why you can’t smash your brother’s face into the carpet” and “You’re not getting up from the table until your seven missing assignments are done,” hope will appear. You WILL SEE a shimmer of light in your kids’ actions that reflect your voice in their life.
You’re doing a great job, mama.
Keep on, keepin’ on.
