We quietly unite at malls, daycares, schools, and social events. The hushed and frustrated tones of another parent speaking to their preschooler about “good behavior” when outside of home base. Our children are referred to as “Strong Personalities”. I hear you, I see you, and I stand by you to give you support. Our little people are not model citizens. They buck the list of room rules. They do not color within the lines.
Pursuing a healthy lifestyle and setting a positive example for children can be filled with stumbling blocks and hurdles. Keeping a sense of self worth and a sense of humor is key. Perfection is unattainable, but effort produces results.
