Ask parents what’s their greatest pleasure.
They will say: “My kids.”
What’s their greatest pain? My kids!
Does your experience sometimes lean too much towards the pain side?
Do you find yourself:
- • Too often yelling at the kids?
- • Wondering if you are more accurately named a drill sergeant and a chauffeur than a Mom?
- • Experiencing stress and anxiety as you rush the kids to school, to activity after activity, and then again to bed at night?
- • Sometimes wondering whether you’re really up to the task?
- • Daydreaming about the serene life you had before kids, and then feel guilty for not appreciating them?
- • Marveling at moms and dads who actually seem to be calm and enjoying their children?
You are not alone. Self-doubt, anxiety and conflict are normal. But they are not inevitable.
