Hello, 

I know that I am new here, but I am wondering what your toughest parenting challenge is?  I know that there a hundreds to choose from :)!

For me, I know that bedtime struggles and temper tantrums can get my goat.

Thanks for your input!

Screaming is the hardest thing to deal with. I have to really concentrate on being calm when my son starts a proper ear aching screaming fit. It winds me up somethig rotten. Usually I place him with his bears until he's calmed a little then I will do whats necessary to stop him crying

Ladies, IMHO, these pale in comparison to the teen years. Nowhere near there with this one, but I've been through it 4 times, and I'll take tantrums anytime instead of all the drama of a teenage girl!

These are super helpful!  Thanks to each of you for your input...I'm taking a survey.  And, bless you for surviving toddlers and teens!  Sometimes I think they both need the same things...

For me it's probably dealing with the complaining and not reacting out of how I want things to go, but rather making sure my reaction is one that will keep in mind the goals for the character I want to develope in them in the long run, not just the short term of addressing the symptoms of an issue, but dealing with the heart of it.

My 4 year old with the climbing and touching stuff, in the stores.  He's so antsy, there, but cool as a cucumber, at home and in the truck.

My 5 year old getting frustrate with her homework.
