I have this vision of the kind of parent I want to be, especially when it comes to correcting behavior, but I keep finding my patience wearing down and there I am yelling and making threats again. So I think I want my New Years resolution to be working on my patience. In preparation I’m wondering what strategies work for others. For example I know that lack of sleep definitely reduces my patience so I’m going to focus on getting a good nights sleep (as much as that’s in my control). The other big trigger for me is if I’m trying to get something else done. Things like making dinner I obviously can’t delay until past bedtime, but the other night I was setting up some smart lighting with 2 minions running around and that definitely could have waited. Has anyone else noticed other things that trigger impatience or help them have more patience with your kids? I’d love to hear it
