Today, I'm sure someone needs to hear this. It's something we really have to remember on a regular basis.
Our children occasionally have bad days.
No matter what we do, they can be sad, weary, moody, crabby, angry, and so on.
Have you ever had one of those days as an adult where everyone and everything seems to irritate you?
This is very normal. Our moods ebb and flow, and so do our kids' moods.
This implies nothing about them, and it certainly doesn't signal that you're a horrible parent.
We must begin to normalize a wide range of emotions in children as part of the human experience.
The goal is not to raise "good" children who are constantly cooperative.
Raising humans who feel supported, loved, and free to be themselves.
