I have tried to limit Connor’s TV watching to one movie before bed while he’s winding down or drinking his milk. I am definitely NOT the disciplinarian in our household. I need to work on that. I feel like I constantly let Terence down because he’ll say no to something then Connor will come to me and I’ll let him do it. Of course most of the time I don’t know his Daddy just told him no…..I feel like a failure and I don’t want to give in to Connor’s wishes all the time.
Part of me feels guilty because I only have a short time with him each day after I get home from work and I want to make it fun…..but that doesn’t mean I need to feed him suckers and goldfish to butter him up. It’s hard for me to manage my time between work, household chores, and my hobby of this blog. It’s actually one of the hardest things I’ve been dealing with…any suggestions you all may have as far as time management, I welcome any advice!
I know part of all of this is just his age. He’s a two year old and he’s going to mis-behave and do things I get upset about. It just breaks my heart to hear him crying so bad. I’ve got to realize I am his parent and not his friend and it’s my Godly duty to discipline him and instill in him the right thing to do.
Pray for me….I need it!
Proof and point: Right after I got out of the shower I found him in his room with the GOLDFISH he wasn’t supposed to touch….ugh….I feel like I am constantly saying “No” and “Why did you do that?”
