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? Sometimes it is not worth it. You just need to let go. if your child is beginning to push you every single time to let go, then you know you are being manipulated but most of the time that is not the case.
