Take a deep breath. Never ever punish when angry. Just don’t. Heed this advice and you’ll always be a calm parent. Separate the kids and then walk away. Step outside. Or, go to your room and close the door and lay on your bed until you are calm.. Have a gulp of cold water. Something. Anything. Just breathe and calm down before you even attempt to react.
Be Grateful. Be grateful for the time we have with our children. These are all big, heartfelt reminders of what it really means to be a parent, even when times are challenging.
