18 years. That’s all we get.
It sounds like a lifetime, but it’s incredible how much faster time goes by when you have kids. Each year seems to go by in a blink of an eye.
When we imagined what life with children looks like, we picture lots of laughter, tickles, and snuggles. We don’t picture yelling at our kids or seeing their eyes fill with tears because of our words. No one wants to spend those short 18 years that way. We want the laughter, the playfulness, the hugs. We want to be a calm mom, a happy mom. The last thing that we want is for our kids to look back at their childhood and remember an angry mom.
That brings me to my reason for the email. 🙂 My friend, Amanda, is holding a completely free video series for parents: From Angry Mom to Peaceful Home, TODAY ONLY. Her free videos teach parents how to stop yelling and start building a calmer, happier home.
Amanda is a Mental Health Therapist, Mom of two boys, and recovering yeller. She said, “I have experienced the overwhelming anger & frustration that comes with motherhood, but I pulled myself out of the funk and built a system that has helped over a thousand Moms get control of their anger.”
In her free videos, she shares her journey from a raging, yelling mom to a calm, happy mom. She shares tips that she uses to help parents from all over the world manage their patience and build calmer happier home with their kids.
She will e-mail her videos straight to your inbox to watch when you have time, AND they are less than 5 minutes each. “So watch them in the school pick-up line, while folding laundry, or before bed. ”
If you feel like you lose your patience more than you want to, I encourage you to check it out. I know that none of us want our kids to be afraid to talk to us or tell us things… and we only have this short window of time before they are grown. When we yell, their little faces just say it all: they are scared and sad. We later feel guilty and sad . (usually while lying in bed, wishing we could re-do the day).
The answer is simple: LEARN to stop. Just like everything in life, we need to learn how to be calm and put those skills into practice.
Today, give yourself a “do-over” and start fresh. 🙂
In the meantime, feel free to grab the videos & put them into practice. Amanda also has a course called Mama’s Anger Management. She can give you more info on it if you are interested, but I’ve heard amazing things about it.
THE VIDEOS ARE AVAILABLE FOR FREE. TODAY ONLY.
I hope that helped! Feel free to write back with any questions & I’ll try to answer them for you.
