Inspiration, Your Daily Zen|

Sometimes, we are very quick to reprimand or give consequences to our children before taking the time to see the situation or feelings from their eyes. Try to connect with them first and it may give you a better understanding of their behavior, giving you more patience and empathy towards your child. If you try this, please share with us your thoughts and what happened! We would love to hear!
