Yesterday could have been a visual for "Bad Parenting 101". Hopefully you all did better. I took it personally. Why are some days like that? Sometimes I can tell myself to remember the fear. Then all of a sudden the next day it hurts. I lashed out verbally. So today is start over day. If you've been having a rough time maybe you could start over today too. If you are overwhelmed, take care of yourself. I have a massage today at 3:30. Snuggle on the couch with your child and read a book. If they will not snuggle sit in the next chair to them and try to make some great eye contact. Don't let yourself continue in a downward spiral. Stop it now and get on back track. We are in this together.
