Children will bounce back almost the minute you fix things....if not the minute, then very soon. They are sponges for our love, and need it constantly. When they are getting enough, you will notice a huge improvement in their behavior. We will explore some trouble areas and some preventative measures on this blog, but just know....if you haven't been doing this all along...IT'S OKAY! I didn't start to "get it" until I was about 40 years old, so you are probably faster on the ball than me. And my kids are doing great. So don't worry. Just enjoy the process of becoming the best parent you can be. It takes time, and luckily, kids are good with that!
