Life's Ups and Downs: How You Deal With Them Impacts Your Kids, Moms!

Let's face it, moms: Life isn’t always sunny. There’s sickness. Loss. Sadness. Disappointment. Along with the magic that’s revealed in your child’s loving eyes. The question is, during hard times, do you resent life? Or do you embrace it and the lessons to be learned that make you stronger and softer inside?

Before you became a mom, your choices affected you, alone. But now, your attitude is like a pebble rippling in a pond. The way that you cope with life will probably be the way that your child copes, too. But back to the good times. This applies there, too. Put these coping tips into action today:

  • When you trust your intuition you’re trusting yourself.
  • Take quiet time daily to connect inwardly.
  • Don’t make decisions when you are angry.
  • Remember why you became a mom.

You can rock this!

I know! A few times, for instance once my application was rejected, I told my kid I felt down. But the next day, I told her I would find a way to improve! Gail Harris
