Child Behavior Problem or Parent Acceptance Problem?

Oh, how I loathe keywords. To me, it’s putting the cart before the horse. In fact, I have a Kindle app that tells you what to write an e-book about based on what people are searching for on Kindle. It’s smart! Find our what people want and give it to them. But it rubs me the wrong way.

What I’ve learned over the last few months is that you’ve got to get people to click on your product or post, and the way to get them to click is to use the keywords they’re searching for. That’s why the title of this post starts with “Child Behavior Problem….” That’s what parents search for, not accceptance, or connection, or how can I change as a parent? 

Truthfully, though, it would be a rare parent who was interested in learning how to accept their child if there wasn’t some problem with that child’s behavior. It’s the frustration and exhaustion of battling with our children that pushes us to search for a new solution, or do something different.

If you’re looking for help with your child’s behavior problems, ask yourself if you’re raising the child you’ve got. Perhaps acceptance is key.

    I believe acceptance is what I need to work on to work with the kid I already have instead of the child I would like to have. It is me I need to find and practice peace and feel less frustrated. Need to do self care more.
