Here is a letter to everyone. You open it. It says, Live. ~Rumi
lately i have been doing a lot of tweaking in the parenting department. i have been trying to see what works the best and what i can throw out the window. my best friend is confidence and trusting what really feels right for me in my heart. only then am i able to enforce what i believe in with conviction. this is huge, kids have a sixth sense and can tell when we are weary. when i am having a tough time i try to channel my inner motivational speaker. who would you rather take direction from, joel olsteen or hitler? does a screaming dictating parent usually get the results they want? i haven't seen it happen, and i've been to walmart many a times. but joel and oprah, they've got audiences beaming with enthusiasm. a nice balance of kindness, firmness and confidence is what's working for me.
