Daily Challenge……Family

‘My children take me for granted and we end up shouting at each other a lot.’
I am feeling…..Angry/Frustrated /Resentful

Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Calm /Love / Respect

Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
Focus on their good points and praise even the smallest of good behaviours.
Do we need to have boundaries and ground rules in place?
Are my expectations of them to high?
Am I rising to their bait?
Do I need to let go of the consequences of their inefficiencies?

Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Focus on their good points and praise even the smallest of good behaviours.
Adopt a pleasant attitude, it usually brings a better response.
Let them learn by their own mistakes (e.g. if they oversleep and are late, they suffer the consequences, rather than you getting worked up as they wont get up on time. etc. )
Appreciate them for who they are, not who you want them to be.
