It was nice to escape from reality this week but I need to start focusing on the everyday life of our family. I feel like we have had more bad days than good the past few weeks. I may be to blame but I can’t take all the blame. We are a family and our actions affect each other. I have just seen a complete breakdown of our family. The kids have completely regressed in terms of what is expected of them. The simple task of throwing away garbage has become a screaming battle. I feel like they view me some days as their servant. They seem to just bark orders and do nothing except do what they want to do.
I know I am partially to blame. I have allowed certain things to lax especially on the days we are running non-stop. But I want to get them back into knowing they need to help out more. If it doesn’t happen I feel like our family is going to suffer. I don’t want to live in a house where I have to yell to get my point across. I don’t want to live in a house where my kids do absolutely nothing to help out. How are they going to learn responsibility?
Once again, another thing in life that proves parenting is no easy task!
