As parents, one of our biggest goals is for our children to grow up confident with an amazing sense of self-worth. When the going becomes tough, we know persistence and tenacity are important traits for our kids to have. When they are born, children are a blank slate. Although it’s a scary thought, children may well become what adults tell them they are in the early years.
A lot of joy comes from parenting…but a lot of stress comes with it as well. Especially as our kids are just getting back to school, comes a new season of activities, commitments, and increased responsibilities. It's hard to know what to let go of as a parent as we want to accomplish it all, often to the detriment of ourselves and our children.
