Unattainable Perfection

When your child has an off day, you have an opportunity to help her work through emotions. Learning that emotions are o.k. to have, but it’s how we act with those emotions that is important.

So, Mom and Dad, the next time your child gets an attitude with you or has a disrespectful tone, ask them if they need to talk. One approach may be to simply say, “Son, you are usually really respectful. I’m sure you didn’t mean to take that tone with me. What’s going on?”

This approach gives you an opportunity to strengthen your relationship and train your son or daughter on appropriate ways to handle big upsets.
