TAKE A BREAK

Tolstoy was not a happy man.  He was sensitive to injustice and the needs of others.  But instead of enjoying what he had been given while also seeking  to ease the burdens of others,  he turned fanatic and aesthetic.  He did not enjoy his fame or take pride in his great writings. He burdened his family. He lost the gift of play.

PARENT ADVICE

Take time this weekend, to do what Tolstoy could not do; be grateful for all you have been given, give back some, keep some; have me-time, family-time, friend-time, quiet time; be kind, be with beauty, be with laughter, be with love.

STAY STRONG

Parenting is difficult and often a struggle as you must know by now.  You should also know this: you are almost certainly a good enough parent. If you’re having a hard time, my advice is not to ignore that, but also to make sure you take care of yourself. When you stay in charge of your negative feelings, your child/ren will benefit too. I urge you to develop Emotional Fitness Training™ skills and share your success with others.

You can also practice kindness by liking, commenting, or sharing my posts. I promise kindness is always rewarded in one way or another.

As always, thank you for your support, it means a great deal to me.

DISCLAIMER: FORGIVE MY GRAMMATICAL ERRORS FOR I HAVE DYSGRAPHIAIf you need perfect posts, you will not find them here. I have dysgraphia which means that sometimes my sentence structure is not that easy to follow or I make other errors. Still, most people understand me. All of my books are professionally edited, but not all of my blog posts are. Thanks for your understanding and reading my work.
