It’s all so quiet…

I’ve been so quiet, I’ve been building my private practice, writing workshops and being a housemaid and a MUM! Not being Wonder Woman has it’s limitations, it means I can only do so much in a day and I’m OK with that. I do not want to feel burdened with EVERYTHING and then end up short with my family, what’s the point in that? ” Great business woman but a banshee at home!”

All to often the little people around us bear the brunt of life not going to great for the adults and that’s not really OK. They are not our proverbial cats to kick whenever we need to vent at how shit our day’s been or to project what we really need to say to our Boss, partner, husband, wife…. (fill in the gap) onto them instead, but I see it and hear it all the time. As adults we kick the cat, have I done this- yes, have I put it right after yes I have. I have told my children I’m not feeling great because of XYZ (a brief description in child friendly words) and I have said I’m sorry by kneeling down on their level and looking them right in the eye.

My children know that just to say the word sorry doesn’t mean anything, sorry actually means don’t do it again, sorry means we’ve got the lesson and the lesson is to never take your blame out on a child when it’s really meant for someone else. Parenting is progress not perfection…
