The greatest accomplishment for any parent is being able to raise their child in a home of love, support, kindness and partnership.
We all want to have homes where we feel those things! And we certainly want to try to create that for our kids.
But the reality is that it’s not always easy. There are so many stressors in out daily lives that it is easy to get overwhelmed, tired, upset and easily frustrated. Small incidents can be blown out of proportion and before we know it, a good day can end badly very quickly.
The good thing about all of that is, that we strive to get past the ugly and work on improving where maybe we are failing. No parent is perfect. No family is without some faults. But as long as the love is real, there is the ability to teach our kids that even with our personal faults (and theirs), we are still an open, loving, kind, supportive unit working in partnership for the kind of home and family we want.
Healthy Family Challenges is one way The Mommy Confessionals hope to inspire other families to engage in positive activities or challenges that will support all those good feelings we want.
On the first of every month, a new challenge/activity will be posted right here! I will also send these out on my social network pages.
One activity per month. And you get to play around with it as much as you want that month, to see how to make it work for your family – and hopefully through repetition you’ll be able to see the impact it has on your home.
Let’s work together to build our amazing families up!
First challenge will be released on July 1, 1017.
