Are you tired of losing your temper with your kids?
Frustrated because you know it’s not good for your kids or yourself?
Before you had kids, you had this picture-perfect vision of how you would be. Maybe not perfect, but at least in more control. And there was an overall sense of calm and peace in your picture. A sense that you and your kids would enjoy your time together.
Then, you had kids. You became a mom. It’s not as easy as all those magazines and commercials make it look, huh?
You added homeschooling. You knew it wouldn’t be easy but with the right purpose and a lot of love, your vision would come together smoothly, right?
Until you lost your temper. Maybe it was something big, like a bag of flour dumped on your kitchen floor, right after you quickly mopped it so you could get started on time with homeschooling?
Or did you fly off the handle over something not-so-big, like crayons spilling over the table during an enthusiastic art project?
The thing about losing your temper, flying off the handle, or whatever you want to call it when you have lost your patience is this: it is just too easy to get into that bad habit.
Why? Well, it can sometimes get you results. Albeit temporary ones, at best. Your kids are acting out of fear or just to get you to calm down, without really knowing what is going on or how to prevent it in the future.
Losing your patience can sometimes feel good, too. Again, temporary. That fast and furious release of pent-up tension and anger! Feels good to let that go. But, only for so long…
