What's the hardest thing about parenting for you? (just one thing)
The above is a Facebook post a friend shared that attracted an amazing list of answers:
As you can imagine, the list goes on.
I love this list! It's real. It's vulnerable. It's parenting.
There's a LOT of hard things about parenting, and I don't believe that the answer is to think positive thoughts, ignore your real feelings, or keep quiet and keep going. I do believe the Model can help; in fact there's one add on thought that could apply to ALL "parenting is hard" thoughts.
"The Model"- a Brooke Castillo process, with an Amanda Kingsley twist...
SITUATION - Parenting
THOUGHT ABOUT THE SITUATION - “Parenting is hard.”
THE FEELING THIS THOUGHT TRIGGERS - Overwhelm
THE ACTION TAKEN FROM THIS FEELING - Parenting in a state of overwhelm; complaining, and or suffering.
