Do You Feel Like You Are Always Saying No to Your Kids? My New Years Resolution

New Years Resolution: Better Parenting

I feel like the bearer of no lately.  There isn't anything wrong with saying no, that's not my point.  I guess I feel like my whole demeanor and attitude with my kids need a do over.  We are forever preaching kindness to our children, but I don't think I have been setting the best example.

It's so frustrating to hear the same tone of voice, and the same words come out of the mouths of my kids.  I hear myself say, "you need to speak kindly to your family."  Then I have to facepalm because I probably sound exactly like that.  Pretty much the worst feeling in the world.

This leads me to my resolution for the new year, to speak kindly.  I need to find a new way to get my kiddos attention, one that won't result in my feeling awful when they repeat it.  Here is what I am proposing...let's be accountable to each other!

What is your parenting resolution?  I know we all want to do better, be better for our own kids.  Let's work together to make that happen!  I will check in periodically on Facebook, and we can update one another on our progress.  Don't worry, I will be sharing the ugly too.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday!
