Today's post will be quick. I am reading a parenting book today because I need to learn better ways to handle The Girl. These past few months have been difficult for all of us. The Chef and I have been fluctuating between Authoritative and Permissive styles of parenting and basically only succeeded in confusing The Girl and creating frustration for ourselves.
You become a parent without having any idea what you're doing. I often feel that I have no outlet for the frustration (and even resentment) that can build up during the day. I'm hoping that educating myself with a different strategy will help.
