Golden Nugget

My golden nugget of parenting advice – first of all, I don’t ever claim to be any sort of expert on parenting and my kids will be the first people to tell you that I am not an expert on parenting; that I make a lot of mistakes; that I fail; that I’m still trying to figure out how to do this; that I don’t always know what I’m doing. I think the best advice I could give someone is be yourself – let your children see who you are, let them know what you are feeling. My kids understand when I’m feeling anxious; they understand when I’m feeling frustrated – I explain to them, “This is how I’m feeling. I need to take a moment to myself. I need to sit down here and meditate for a few minutes.” They see me fail and they see me get back up. And I think that message speaks so much more to them than anything that I ever say to them.
