Press the pause button

All too often we parents react to our children’s misbehaviour out of frustration, tiredness or anger. This mostly leads to more upset for us and for our children.

Pressing the pause button means taking a few breaths before reacting. This way, we have a better chance of responding in a calm manner. So the next time you find yourself struggling with impatience, take a moment to steady yourself. This will result in far less battles!
