My kids are at the point where they are sick and tired of being together. The summer started with backyard pool parties and sleepovers in the living room. After only a couple weeks of quality togetherness, the fighting had begun. Nothing a little ice cream can't handle.
The problem came down to a lack of both 'benevolent leadership' and 'internal locus of control'.
In these beautiful moments, I felt as if I was as close to seeing the face of God as I would ever be in this life.
When my husband and I married in our late teens, we had yet to discover how to resolve our differences like adults.
We have to be more creative with our discipline tactics these days.
