A lot of times when my kids ask questions it’s because they are thinking about something, it’s a question they have to ask themselves. They also ask a lot of questions when they are talking about themselves. This is where I really like to let them know they have value and the right to ask questions. I tell them, “If you are thinking about something, don’t ask me about it first.
This is an important point because it is not always possible to know everything about the thoughts or feelings of another person. I believe the best way to learn about the thoughts and feelings of another person is to talk with that person. By understanding what the other person is trying to convey, you can then make a suggestion to them that will make them feel better.
This is why I make a point of talking to my kids about everything. I try to explain to them how I feel and why, and I try to make them feel that I care about them so it makes them feel even better. Just like I do with my parents.
When we say “make their feelings better,” we mean, “make their feelings worse.” When your kids get tired of yelling and want a nap, you just make them feel like they have no control. They are in charge, not you.
You can make your kids feel better by making sure they get enough sleep, but you can also make them feel like you care about them. The opposite of “making their feelings worse” is “making their feelings better.” You say, “How’s your day?” and they say, “Great!” You let them know you’re paying attention and you get something out of their day because you care about them.
This quote from the article is one of my favorites. The thing about it is that it is a statement about feeling like parents, not just telling someone to feel like a parent. Because when a child gets too tired to play, they typically just lie down and go to sleep, and you are left with a sad, tired, and frustrated child. And you just feel crappy that you didn’t give them the attention they deserved.
It is a universal truth that most people tend to feel crappy because they are the ones who are too tired to play. To some extent, this is the reason why when people do care about their children, they can be incredibly hard on themselves. I like the idea that we are all hard on ourselves sometimes, but we are also hard on our children a lot more than we realize.
Well, I was one of those people who felt crappy when my son started crying after I picked him up and said, “I know you love me, and I love you, but you need to go to bed.” (I had a hard time not rolling my eyes). To be fair, I had a hard time not rolling my eyes too. I can’t think of anything I’ve ever done that made me feel as crappy as that.
Some of us are so hard on ourselves that we may feel like we’re doing something wrong by not looking to our children for our support or guidance. We may feel guilty and ashamed for not being the perfect parents we want to be. We also may not realize that our kids may be struggling in the same ways we are. We don’t know how to give love and support because we feel that we can’t.
That’s a common response to our parenting struggles. Some of us feel like we don’t know how to parent because we’re so bad at it. You may be one of those people. You may feel that you’re too good to be a parent, and that you’re not good enough to parent. You may feel that you’re not good enough to raise a child, but you still raise them. You may be so good at what you do that you don’t realize you’re not.
