I like my parents today. But I don’t think that I did when I was growing up.
They were always telling me what to do. Always treated my brother better than me. They never let me do anything that I wanted to.
It’s funny, but I heard my own children say much of the same things.
My parents are there when I need them.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Parents Day:
Parenting is hard. It is not for the weak at heart.
Parenting is about the unconditional love that you give to your children, often with very few rewards given back at the time.
So, look through your family pictures and focus on the easy, fun and/or rewarding times, instead of the difficult times that you have had as a parent
Share a special memory with your child about your child. Let them know that you hold them dear to your heart
Share a special memory of your own childhood. Let your children know that you didn’t always value your parents, but you do now
Call your own parents and let them know that you appreciate them as parents
Parenting is hard. We need to support each other as parents and let each other know that perfection is not the key, but self-confident, happy adult children is the reward. Happy Parent’s Day!
