Patience By Shelley Heaphy

I don’t know if it’s summer vacation or the heat, but I’m in serious need of some help with keeping calm and being patient with my kids. I absolutely love almost every moment of spending summer with the kiddos this year, I realize how lucky I am to get this time with them, and I relish the memories we’re making together. But sometimes, just sometimes I blow out a loud sigh of exasperation (that my youngest has now started to mimic when he’s annoyed!) and raise my voice and well, lose my patience. I’m sure many of you can relate to these feelings of frustration, and that we all have them regularly, but the question is how can we avoid losing our cool with our kiddos?
