Some of the parenting advice I found was great. However, I hated the one-size-fits-all approach because children are so different and what works for one child is not right for another.
The it’s-just-a-phase-they’ll-grow-out-of-it mentality left me feeling frustrated and helpless. I didn’t want to simply throw my hands up in the air and wait it out. I wanted practical solutions that worked. Solutions that left both me and my child feeling good. Solutions that brought us closer together.
I turned to the worlds of psychology and self-improvement. This is when everything started making sense. When the parenting world was saying “he just wants attention”, the psychology world explained exactly why he needs attention. When the parenting world was telling me to conjure up a bit more patience, the self-improvement world told me exactly how to do it.
I started applying what I was learning and the results were drastic. I now get complimented on my child’s great listening skills and her cooperative demeanor. People go out of their way to tell me what a pleasure it is being around my child and how well behaved she is.
Is life perfect? No.
Parenting is hard. But it doesn’t have to be that hard.
Everyday does not have to be a battle. Everything does not have to be a struggle. It can be easier.
