In all honesty, if you want peaceful mornings (on most days), then you have to take responsibility for them. Any good coach will tell you that you can't expect greatness from your players if you don't do tough work yourself. This is what we do to survive mornings...
I'd like to show our problem solving attempts; what has made a difference in our every day interactions, and over the long haul.
What makes anger management a challenge for you? My trigger is Extra Work. Anything that gives me one more scrap of work to do makes my blood boil.
How do I go about disciplining smaller kids in my house? If you ask my mom and sisters, they will tell you that I don't. That's not really my fault, though!
We rarely feed the entire flock at restaurants; the cost is prohibitive, seating is tricky, and then there's the stress of iffy manners from the kids.
Not to stir up old family drama or anything, but hand me a spoon... Think about a time you were disciplined when you were your child's age. How do you wish your parents would have handled the situation? How can you discipline better?
Daily life is far more rewarding when we have more positives than negatives in the "bank".
We have to be more creative with our discipline tactics these days.
