The hardest part of parenting….
Joy- What Nik said! And heeding your own advice. I tend to raise my voice rather than yell but it’s essentially the same thing so I try to work on that everyday. But not everyone has a Calvin who very much lives up to his comic status. So patience is also very tough.
Nik- For me, it was learning to pick my battles. I am by far a perfectionist. I may be a little controlling though. Not being able to control every aspect of my children’s lives was a hard lesson for me to learn and still learn.
Tonya- Patience! By far. Especially with homework, my twins are only 5 but sometimes they have trouble with what they are working on and I get frustrated so I have to get Daddy to help them because I don’t want to be negative in any way to them when they are working so hard.
