Bedtime routines that go on forever. Temper tantrums in public. Frequent separation anxiety. If you’re a parent of toddler, you know it well. Finding yourself not able to take another day of the stress and anxiety that comes from parenting toddlers. It does not have to be that way.
I need some advice. Since I was a kid my mom and I have been best friends, always doing routine things together every weekend, like going to the movies or going shopping. She used to tell me to build relationships outside of our relationship, but my full focus was on her and I had no interest in anyone else.

Sadly, over time we have become more uncomfortable with setting limits and being consistent with our daily routines or general rules. Parenting is a difficult job – the most difficult and demanding job I have ever had. Our children need us to be the parent, even when it’s uncomfortable and ugly.
Traveling CAN be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be a horror show. Keep in mind that society lets loud, obnoxious grown ups out and about in public – so KIDS who are loud and… ummm… let’s just say loud – are allowed out there too!

After almost 50 years of working with children, including my own, there is one certainty I can share: Parenting is not for the weak-hearted!
Recently I did an interview with a mother of twins, who baffled me. She had given birth to twins naturally, without pain relief, and was hesitant about using the term “painful” when talking about the process. She was in labor for less than three hours, and she walked out of the delivery room with her babies.
