Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent or work an office job, or are a kid sitting through a long day of school, the daily grind is exhausting. It’s only natural that by the time you, your children, and your partner get home, everyone is feeling a little drained.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could all walk through our front door at the end of a big day and head straight to bed?
While that sounds like a great idea, the reality is that you still have a lot you need to get done between helping kids with homework, putting dinner on the table, and getting your children ready for bed.
This is the point in the day when many parents find themselves overwhelmed, frustrated, and frazzled. And when you’re not feeling your best, it’s easy to ignite “fire in the brain” moments in your child that cause more frustration due to tantrums, inappropriate behavior, and poor listening skills.
If you struggle to make it through the second half of the day with your children, I have great news for you…
When using mindful parenting techniques, it’s not only possible, but simple, to establish a peaceful and enjoyable evening routine from the moment your child steps off the bus to the moment you tuck your kid into bed at night.
Watch this week’s Mad2Glad Parenting tip video and discover how to use mindful parenting techniques to make your evening routine calm and simple.
Give these techniques a try, and I promise you’ll…
