How do you find a balance when it comes to correcting your children vs. their self expression?


Some days when my patience is running low I feel like all I'm doing is fussing. "Stop smacking." "Again, sit down and finish your homework!" "Stop running around the house." "Why am I having to tell you that again?" "Be nice to each other!" "Don't talk to him/her like that." Do you feel like you have to tell your kids the same things every single day? How do you not go crazy?! What things should I just not swear? It also feels like they know I'm tired and especially try my patience on those days.

    Yes! Thank you for admitting you can relate! Kids definitely do get stressed too. Kids love rewards no matter how old they get. I definitely want to teach my kids about hard work & good choices & will start expressing my expectations positive

    You are so right! As an educator, I have learned all about reinforcement. I have trouble with forgetting that my kids are human, regular kids too and all I have learned and practiced applies to them too! :)
