Get ready, mama, because I'm about to give you the best parenting hack you have ever heard:
Ask for help.
"Well, duh!" you may answer, "Everyone says that."
It's true that everyone else may say that, but I'm not talking about typical help from you hubby, mom, neighbor, family, or friend (though those are all good resources). I'm talking about asking someone who knows your children even better than you do. I'm talking about the One who created them.
You may think that sounds a bit "woo-woo" but let me tell you from experience: it works!
And it makes sense.
Just the other night my friend and I were talking about how each of our children is so different. What works for one of them may completely flop for another. And some methods of teaching or discipline only last for a season: it was working great for a while and then your child reaches a new level of development and you have to readjust. Or, some methods work great for some circumstances but not for others.
There are so many different opinions on so many different parenting methods, how do you know what to do???
