Parenting can often feel like a struggle. As a parent you have a clear idea of what needs to be done over the course of day. There are meals to be planned and served, errands to be run, getting the kids to and from school, homework to be done, and all of the other tasks that fill daily life.
Kids, on the other hand, lack the same sense of priorities or an understanding of the necessity of this structure, which means it can feel like hard work for their parents just to get through the day.
This week I have a conversation with parenting specialist Carrie Contey about how parents can manage the demands of daily life while still helping their kids to grow in a happy and healthy way.
