Parents, Keep Calm & Stay Present

In this post, I offer some techniques and tips for how to remain calm and keep from losing your temper during stressful parenting situations, such as when your toddler is having a tantrum in the grocery store.  These are the moments in which we feel helpless, defeated, and like failures as parents.  The truth is, all parents have moments of struggle.  Use those moments as opportunities to connect with others, and follow the steps to show yourself compassion.  This is one topic that will be covered at my upcoming parenting skills workshop.  You'll want to check that out too!
