  • I told the children that I would not referee their disputes. They learned to figure out how to handle their own disagreements. As far as peace between my husband and myself. I love him, so I do what I can to keep him happy to be home.

  • I have a lot of medical problems, cluster headaches, and so on. My moods typically dictate my parenting style(s) for the most part I know if it's gonna be a long day or a rough night I give them something big to earn/work towards to help them self regulate..... they'll play seperately or work out their fights rather than tattle and whine
