In parenting, sometimes we need to let go. We become emotionally charged. Things are getting heated and we just need to step back and walk away. It is time to detach and let go. It does not mean not caring for your child. It is just a choice. Do you want to remain close or do you want to impact the relationship negatively? We let go. We let go in situations where we are telling them to do something and they are arguing no, they don´t want to do it. Ask yourself. Am I willing to pick that as my battle?
