Guess what?  You don’t have to complete your to-do list!  YUP!!

Parenting Our Future

You can be a peaceful parent and still be in charge.  In fact, our kids NEED us to be IN CHARGE.  They are always looking to us to show them the way and if we are unsure and inconsistent it causes stress and anxiety in our kids which leads to behavior we don’t like.
