Surviving Parenting Challenges

Parenting is like riding a roller coaster. 

There are moments when everything is great and you’re up high and happy and you have a good perspective on things… and then there are moments when you just feel like you are falling and failing constantly at rapid speed. 

Sometimes there are even years where you feel like you’re wearing boots with cement and you’re trudging along going nowhere (or backwards).

Have you ever had weeks, months, or years like that?

What do I mean by parenting challenges?

It could be anything! Here are a few ideas…

  • My child can’t seem to figure out potty training
  • My child keeps hitting me and friends
  • I haven’t slept a full night in 3 years and it is like torture
  • My daughter was just diagnosed with special needs
  • My kids throw a fit about what I cook at every meal
  • My spouse and I can’t agree on anything related to discipline or parenting
  • My son’s preschool keeps calling me and telling me he can’t listen
  • My oldest daughter keeps drawing with Sharpie on the walls around the house
  • My son is being bullied at school and I don’t know how to help
  • My toddler has constant tantrums, all day long!

Today I’m going to share four simple tips that have helped me (and continue to help me) during these really hard times.

Paint the Alphabet- Toddler Matching Game

Paint... water... and painting on the wall? What more could a kid ask for in an activity!

There is nothing I love better than finding an activity to help us pass the time between lunch and when my big kids get home from school! My littlest misses her big siblings and is always counting down the minutes till they will come play with her.

Each afternoon when we are home and not running errands, easy activities help keep the requests to watch Paw Patrol or another favorite show at bay. 

These simple activities serve as a transition activity to get kids thinking more creatively and ready for free play!

Today I'm sharing our Paint the Alphabet activity! This was a simple watercolor matching game for toddlers and preschoolers to help them explore the alphabet.
