Yep. I’m sharing a bit about my experiences with discipline which is probably my biggest challenge as a mother.
I’ve often felt like waving a white flag of surrender when it comes to disciplining my children, my weakness taking the form of that old monster: Consistency.
Still, that hasn’t stopped me from trying.
Over my fifteen years of parenting, I’ve read books, magazine articles, even enrolled in classes.
And sometimes I still believe I’m a failure.
But that’s what is so great about Natalie’s Mommy Moments, a feature she runs every Monday. It’s a safe space to share and commiserate about the times where you DON’T feel like you’ve knocked this whole parent gig out of the park.
Which for me is most days, if I’m being honest.
So please stop by to read my story and share your own in the comments.
If you’re like me, you won’t leave her place without a smile…

In its sharpest distillation, parenting calls... Read more
