As much as every mother would like to have nothing but days of sunshine and picnics, it's just not realistic. As a human, days can become consumed with busy errands, arguments, pressure, and frustration. Unfortunately, this frustration can sometimes be directed at the children in the home. It's important for us, as parents, to keep in mind that a little human isn't capable of handling their own emotions well enough to handle an adults emotions along with them, which is why it's so important to practice patience in every interaction you have with your child. This isn't always easy to do, especially when there are calls to make, dinner to plan, kids to pick up, and a work schedule to write.
