Find support. Grow confident. Stay in control.
Loving your children is a ‘sure thing.’
You could say “I love you” a million times a day – and mean it. You don’t just assume they know it – that’s why you tell them you love them.
You want your kid to know that your love for them is a sure thing. You certainly know it’s true, but you wonder if your child feels that certainty in their own heart and mind.
Even when you try to nurture the warm connection you both need, your child remains distant, suspicious, and even defiant. You want to be their ally. But, too often, they see you as their adversary.
Their response to you is a mystery – and often leads you to exhaustion. What can you do when they spin out of control? Hide in a closet? Scream louder? Walk away? Phone a friend?
The days are long, but the years are short.
You don’t want to lose patience, but they seem to know just how to push your buttons. And later you wonder if you are just pushing them away. You really wish they came with a manual.
Even though the task of parenting seems never-ending, you know they are growing up. What will they take with them from their childhood?
The way your parents did it just doesn’t seem to work for you. It’s time to find another view.
