Tools to solve problems with kids
Your tools work, as long as kids are fed, husband’s work is going well, and your own work deadlines are being met.
1. Kids: You have a structure in place and feed them healthy food.
2. Husband: You make his favorite food, you listen to his work frustrations, and you keep the kids out of his way when he’s tired or grumpy.
3. Work: You arrive on time, work hard and are proactive.
4. Hormones: Though they may have a life of their own, you have a basic system to deal with them. You warn your hubby, you don’t over commit that week, and you take some time for yourself when you can.
