This week’s Parenting Practice

This week, notice your language. Are you speaking in a way that makes your child the problem? Set these intentions: "I'm aware of what I'm saying. I'm catching myself when I set myself up to make my parenting experience harder than it needs to be. I am changing my language to be honest with myself without adding drama or creating more struggle."
