    Why Don't You Put That Energy Here?

    Why Don't You Put That Energy Here?

    The Stoics remind us not only to focus on what’s in our control, but specifically in regards to aggravating people, they tell us that the best revenge is to not be like them. Don’t be angry. Live well. Don’t get sucked into a negative world, commit more deeply to a positive world that you do control–the one you live in with your family. The one where your children will not exist forever—so enjoy it now while you can.
    Put that energy where it counts. Put it where it makes you better.

    How To Be The Greatest Ever

    How To Be The Greatest Ever

    We’ve said before: kids do well when they can. When you give them the opportunity, kids generally do the right thing. You don’t have to scream. You don’t have to force them to do their homework. You just have to give them the opportunity to show you they know what’s right…sometimes they just need one more chance to get there.

    Aren't You A Little Old For That?

    Aren't You A Little Old For That?

    When our kids mess up we say: Aren’t you a little old for that? And we have all sorts of rules of thumb for what things are age appropriate or not—what age they should stop having accidents, what age they should stop throwing a tantrum just because they’re tired, what age it stops being okay for other people to have to pick up after them.
    You’re too old to act this way. It’s time to grow up.

    What's More Important?

    What's More Important?

    It’s strange. The things we’re upset about–with our spouses, with our children, with our siblings. They feel like they matter so much in the moment. With time or distance though, these feelings always fade. And what’s left when we’ve acted on them? When we let them get the better of us in the moment?

    Sheepishness. Regret. Damage that cannot be undone.

    You Gotta Be Delicate About These Things

    You Gotta Be Delicate About These Things

    It’s the moment we dread. Our son is dating someone we know is bad for them. Our daughter is about to change college majors and throw away years of work. Our toddler has started biting or hitting or shouting some curse words.

    We have to think about correcting behavior as nudging our children, not forcing them. We have to persuade, not overpower.
