Tantrums. Fights. Screams. Tears. Hurts. Bad words.
I told my girls they could avoid those things.
They should learn to compromise.
That there are always free choices.
That they should learn to choose what they think would be best for them.
That tantrums, fights, screams, tears, bad words nor hurts would not always help.
They could choose to talk; rather than argue.
They could choose to discuss; rather than scream.
They could choose a pause; rather than use bad words.
They could choose a hug ; rather than hurt.
And most importantly, they should know that we always love them no matter what.
