Although this is a comic strip the story it tells is all too familiar to parents! Sometimes it is easier to give in to our kids and keep sane….
I totally believe that you have to choose your arguments with your kids. It is not a bad thing to give in to your kids now and again - within reason that is! Now don’t get me wrong I am not saying let your kids do what they like or get everything they want. I am all on for standing your ground with kids and sticking to what you say. However lets me honest - it’s easier said than done!! Sometimes you have to be wise and do whats best for everyone’s sanity.
So next time the kids are driving you mad and the constant nagging is getting too much, why not have a rethink and ask yourself is this argument worth it? is there a compromise or alternative that you could both agree on?
Givng in does not make you a bad mammy it means you can judge when an argument is just not worth the hassle or the temper tantrums!! Sometimes it really is a toss up between being consistent or remaining sane....
