“For the Next Day, resolve to demonstrate patience and to say nothing negative to your children at all. If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything. It’s better to hold your tongue than to say something you’ll regret” (The Love Dare, 4.)
I decided to start this a week or so ago, then put it off because… mostly because I didn’t know how to make the change from doing this program with a husband or SO (of which I have none) to my sons. I think, however, the only way to move forward is just to jump and go. So that is what I’m doing. It’s not like I don’t have a good relationship with my sons, but it could be better. I get angry when they agree to do something around the house and then blow me off. That is what their Father used to do and I just don’t want to live with that anymore.
So, tomorrow will be the day to start. I will keep all of you updated on how each day goes.
