Parenting: Keep Your Eye on the Big Picture

Monday November 4, 2013

By Amy Morin

It can be so easy to get caught up in the every day stress of parenting that it makes it hard to see the big picture. Dealing with behavior problems, temper tantrums, and defiance can make you want to pull your hair out.

There's times when every parent has done what's easiest in the moment, instead of what's best for the long-term. Give in during a tantrum and it will stop. Back down when your child argues and the argument ends.

However, it's a vicious cycle. Give in or back down and you'll make behavior problems worse over the long haul. Therefore, it's important to look at the big picture when you're parenting.

Check out some of these inspirational and humorous parenting quotes to help motivate you to stay strong when you're disciplining your child.
