What Are You Doing Right?
Kids are from Krypton, Parents are from Pluto: Radio series update May 6: When’s the last time someone told you that you were doing a great job? How about that you are doing a great job being a parent? We all need to feel good about ourselves, and about what we are doing.
In the midst of trying to raise kids, you might find yourself just focusing on what you have to do, what you didn’t do, what you didn’t do right—and never take time to pat yourself on the back. Well, today’s show did just that: Looked at what you are doing right. And before you start yes-butting, just know that while there’s always more you can do, celebrate the things you are already doing. For instance, think about how much you do to teach moral and values; spend time together; set a good example; show them how proud you are; value their education; and most importantly, love them unconditionally. Please feel free to add more ‘rights’ of your own. And at the end of each day, I encourage you to stop and think about not went wrong or what you didn’t get done. Instead, think about what you did right—and give yourself a pat on the back!
