    Thanks Christina; to me this is all about separating the person from the behaviour but I love how you summed it up with “does this make them harder to love, or just harder for us to act from a place of loving kindness?” It’s a phrase that really resonated with me and I’ll hold it in mind next time I’m struggling to be the parent I strive to be

    Well put! It’s so much easier for me to react lovingly to my son when I try to get inside his head and remember he’s a real person with real feelings. Our society doesn’t really encourage us to think of kids that way, but for me it definitely helps me be a better parent to look at what he’s feeling and thinking and try to fix the root problem of sadness or frustration and not just the “symptom” of misbehaving.

    Nicely said. I particularly appreciated the differentiation between our children as possessions and as individuals.

    Beautiful – I love the emphasis on finding moments of compassion and understanding, not just “dealing” with whatever the child is presenting. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Very lovely.
    I have noticed when my little Peanut is frustrating me it isn’t a behavior or discipline problem, just that mommy needs a break. This is when daddy steps in and I take a walk or go to Starbucks alone for an hour. I come back refreshed and suddenly my Peanut isn’t so trying!

    I’m going to have to tattoo this on my forearm.. we’re struggling with toddlerhood right now and I miss the days of ages 0-1
