  • Wow, I don't think that ever subsides! My kids are in their twenties with children of their own. Seriously, I think I got about one year total of not worrying about them- then when I let my guard down, along comes the grandkids! LOL! Patience comes with age, I think. I remember when my kids were little- I am much better with the grandkids.

  • Just try to remember what it felt like when you were little, and then guide your kids to grow. We all lose our cool sometimes, but nothing really matters besides the fact that you are a family and that you love each other unconditionally. :-)

  • I could use a lot more patience. I had a lot when my daughter was a baby but now that's she's 5 and can argue with me it's alot harder.
