Insanity is Hereditary. You get it from your children

Tough times in this house hold. Blah. What I wanted to say is that mom's tend to constantly question our selves. We wonder what it is we are doing wrong. Our children's behavior is not always the result of something we are doing right or wrong. Sometimes it is their choice. Sometimes they cannot help it. If you are doing the right things in parenting, and you know what they are, and things are not going well. Stop. Take a step back. Are you so overly emotionally involved that you lose focus of the other parts of your life? I am very much guilty of this at times. Focus on your healthy relationships, take care of your body, take care of your spirit. You may be doing the right things and things can still go badly. Keep on keeping on. One foot in front of the other.
