Guiding Your Strong Willed Child, Week 4

Well we are right in the heart of it all now!  We are creating space for our children to live with freedom within our clear boundaries.  We are investing in our children.  We are softening and connecting before big demands.  We are offering choices before challenging behavior occurs, staying consistent in the tough moments and making changes later.  We are remembering that corrections are expensive – so we spend them wisely.  We are reflecting on our values and how our rules reflect them.  Most of all, we are remembering that no child has ever been parented perfectly & ours will not be the first (nor do they need to be!)  We are a perfect work in progress & we extend that same grace to our children.  Happy Micro Choicing!
