Episode 317

It can be exhausting to parent children with big emotions — especially when it feels like our efforts to improve behavior, moods, and attitudes take longer than we would like. Even if we understand (in our minds) that it takes time for our kids to learn how to deal with their discomfort and develop new skills, that doesn’t always make us stop wishing they would feel and act better more quickly

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why wanting things to go more quickly actually slows things down 
  • One question we can ask ourselves to change our perspective and our attitude (so progress does happen faster) 
  • The key to less frustration if children do take time to change
