The “Ah Ha” moment for me was the skit with the paper being thrown, representing all the negative influences our kids face daily.
In the mornings its rush time – making sure your kids have everything, making sure you have everything – and then if something happens you’re already stressed, already frustrated and you get upset at the kid.
So the kid is already upset going to school. And then with everything getting thrown at them they’re going to have a tough time.
So I realized that in the mornings I need to be more patient, more loving, and more supportive. Making sure that they have a smile in the mornings. Making sure that they are set for the day. That way, whatever is thrown at them, they are protected with a positive loving send-off each morning.
