TBT: Air Parent
“You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.” (Michael Jordan)
Want to be a great parent? Want to be up to the challenge of raising your kids while keeping your cool? Then expect that you can. Stop telling yourself that you can’t do this. Stop beating yourself up for the times you’ve screwed up. Those two common thoughts that you have are the very things that are keeping you stuck.
Start your day today by telling yourself how capable you are of being a mature adult. Then rise to the occasion by slowing things down when you find yourself in the heat of the moment. That way, you’ll be giving yourself a chance to respond rather than react to a stressful situation. It will be hard, but each time you do it, you’ll be getting stronger and more equipped to handle whatever comes your way.
