Parenting Advice

....from Bennett....

This is the exact phraseology of what he felt I needed to hear today:

"Mom. I think you need to take it easy on Chloe a bit more. She doesn't have as much experience as me and Gavin, so you might not want to talk harshly to her and be a bit more patient. Have a kind voice with her. Try not to make her cry."

It would be very nice, in my little opinion, if he might take his own advice to heart. But, it seems that I'm the one needing it at the moment.

I should probably take Bennett's advice today, too, as it's been a particularly trying week with Caleb. Thanks for the reminder, Bennett! :)

I've been called out by Bella too. Kinda humbling, kinda irritating :)

Yeah, totally lost it with Alex today after having to repeat the same instructions to him AT LEAST 5 times! But, in my humble opinion, sometimes it takes a little crying-moment to get their attention...or at least that's what I tell myself :)

Out of the mouths of babes....
