Before I had children, I was a great mother.
I knew the parenting style I wanted and I was ready to go! I knew how my kids would act and how I’d react. I knew the best way to raise my kids and I was ready for the challenge of working it out!
Then I had children.
And everything I knew was thrown out the window. And to make matters worse, great parenting ideas seem to ebb and flow. Some days my approach works perfectly. Other days it seems to be the catalyst for more bad behavior!
