“The day has been ruined!” Bella said. Her eyes sparkled and flashed as she spoke of her injury. Bella was not so pleased with her labor’s reward. She was not so satisfied with being accountable for her children‘s behaviors, when they thwarted her every effort at having a good family experience.
Five pieces to Bella’s puzzle:
- endless new beginnings
- victim or what?
- our reward
- accountability in parenting
- all-or-none catastrophizing
There are many approaches to these provocations but I’ll tell you mine – a blend of others. There’s a lot in Bella’s list. Let’s take the next few days to explore them. I’m not sure how long I’ll be interested in these topics but that’s the plan for now!
In the mean time, it would be GREAT! to hear from you. Please tell me your thoughts on any or all of these.
