Calm down. Sometimes these words are hard to hear when the kids are driving you nuts, overwhelm and exhaustion are not too far away and feeling calm seems completely out of reach. No matter how hard we try there are always days where we will feel that it’s just all too hard. it’s at times likes these that our ‘handy tools’ are either filed so far back in the far corners of our mind that we can’t reach them, or we just don’t have the energy to go searching for help.
As we all know, toddlers can be extremely difficult to reason with, and getting them to do everyday things is sometimes just downright painful (please tell me it’s not just my kids??)!
