Standards and routine are super important parts of our parenting toolbox. But so is the flexibility necessary in growing a healthy relationship.
Sometimes, maybe more than we realize, we need to let it go. “It” could be a broken rule, late bedtime, missed chores, spilled milk or “it” might be expectations and schedules.
Your choice to move on means you are prioritizing your child and sharing the vital life lessons of kindness, self-care, and grace.
Here’s to our ability to know what’s important and what is not. Great job choosing to give up, pull out, and surrender because – in this case – it was really the right thing to do.
