There has been a shift in the way I look at parenting. I am enjoying it the way I always wanted to. It is still hard but I am finding myself spending more time having fun with the kids than yelling at them. I have been taking a Love and Logic class at the school and it has helped me realize that I need to treat parenting like Heavenly Father treats us. He sent us to earth to learn and to experience both the good and the bad. But he didn't just abandon us without any guidelines. Christ came up with the perfect plan, one of choice and accountability and that is exactly how I feel I should raise my kids. I plan to teach them through example and loving conversations what is right and safe and true. But I will also let them know that I will always love them no matter what choices they make and I will follow through and allow consequences to happen. Parenting is tricky...everyone has an opinion on how we should or should not raise our kids. But I think my best bet is to follow the only perfect example I know, don't you?
