Okay, a revelation in mothering…pre-emptive strikes!
First of all, let me say, my children are not my enemies. But they sure can wreak havoc in our home. In fact just last night, Emmie was labelled “the tornado”, by the other kids!
If I can have enough foresight to meet the need before it becomes a terrible, screaming, ear-piercing emergency, oh the grief that can be saved!! So this has become a goal of mine over the last few days. When I succeed, yes, there is indeed more peace in our home. When I fail, I am trying to make a mental note to be able to catch it next time, before the situation elevates.
Please share, what have you found to be successful in your home in keeping the peace amongst the little savages?
