Letting Go by Aprilisa Designs
My daughter is very strong willed. I have come to appreciate this and how it makes her strong and special. So why do I still lose my temper so much with her? All my research on parenting methods still has not prepared me on what to do when she refuses to put shoes on to go out, or when she would rather have her toys taken away than put them away herself. Inevitably I lose my patience. I yell and force and she screams and refuses. I feel like we spend half the day fighting. If I only had the patience I know we could enjoy each other so much more like when we hug and laugh and play. So I will keep trying because I can't change her. She is beautiful and wonderful and sweet and emotional and I wouldn't have it any other way.
