A few months ago, before summer began, I sat down to make a list. All of the fun things the kids and I would do this summer–all in one place.
The zoo, the kids’ museum, the library, the park… we were going to do it all. After all, kids are only little for so long and summers go by so fast; I don’t want to waste a minute.
And so far, it’s going great. We’re doing a lot of fun things. The kids are having a ball.
There’s just one problem… Taking care of three small children all day every day all summer long is enough to make any mom–dare I say it?–a little tired. A little grouchy.
Every day, I start off the day with the best of intentions. Today, the kids are going to be good listeners. Today, I’m not going to yell or lose my patience. Today, we’re going to have fun.
And then the kids wake up way too stinkin’ early, argue over who gets to use the bathroom first, argue over who gets to sit on which side of the table at breakfast, and feed the baby cheerios even though I told them not to.
Another day, another silent prayer… “God, looks like I’m going to need your help again today…” (Does God ever allow our kids to misbehave so we’ll come to Him more? Sometimes I wonder!)
And before I knew it, the summer was over and not much had changed…
Are you tired of being a grouchy mom?
Are you tired of constantly having to be on your children’s case to get them to behave?
Are you tired of constantly reaching the end of the day, only to look back and wonder “What happened??” or “Where did I go wrong?”
Are you ready to make this school year truly your best one yet?
It’s not too late.
So, I’m issuing you a challenge: The +Positive Parenting Challenge.
Six days of real, down-to-earth, encouraging emails to help you out on this parenting journey. Read them in the morning to start your day off right, or read them at night to help you prepare for another big day.
Each challenge is simple. You won’t need any money, special materials or advanced preparation. You already have everything you need to complete the challenges and enjoy your time with your kids that much more.
So what do you say? Are you ready to make some changes?
If you still have children living at home, you owe it to them (and to yourself!) to take this challenge. Hit the button below to sign up today!
Let’s do this!
