As a mother, it’s easy to be correcting children the majority of the time. But, it wears the relationship thin, and is the perfect set up for power struggles.
One of the most creative and fun ways to build positive time in your relationship, and eliminate a large percentage of unnecessary battles, is to share your delight in your children.
Do this by capturing those cute things they say or do. Write or record them so you don’t forget the details. Then most importantly share them with your child. Go here for ideas on how to record your child’s quips and anecdotes.
Go here to purchase The Palest Ink, a journaling book perfect for recording your children’s comments — also ideal for Mother’s Day or grandparent gift giving.

Birthdays, trips, holidays, and one-on-one times are ideal occasions for re-telling these stories. Have fun, and in the process, watch your child’s attitude improve.
