Who else has a spirited kid?


We are all learning to focus on what we can control.


“Remember, parents, you’re the
only adult in the relationship.
Be the first to listen,
the first to forgive,
the first to apologize,
the first to understand,
the first to back down and
try to find another way
when the going gets tough.
Before you know it,
your child will be an adult
just like you.
Just. Like. You.
Make sure you’re the adult
you want them to become.”

While it is natural to be feeling stressed and anxious at the moment, it is important to also keep things in perspective. Reminding ourselves of the things that we have control over rather than focusing on the things we can't control, can help to reduce anxiety and distress...💜 ||

BrainPower Neurodevelopmental Center

“...disruptive behavior is often generated by unrecognized anxiety. A child who appears to be oppositional or aggressive may be reacting to anxiety—anxiety he may, depending on his age, not be able to articulate effectively, or not even fully recognize that he’s feeling.

‘Especially in younger kids with anxiety you might see freezing and clinging kind of behavior,” says Dr. Rachel Busman, a clinical psychologist at the Child Mind Institute, “but you can also see tantrums and complete meltdowns.’”

Real talk.

For someone in Meghan Markle’s position to be honest and raw about the difficulties of the postpartum, albeit briefly, is so important as it breaks down the illusion that it’s easy for those that are in a place of privilege. This woman left her life and family behind and is navigating so many new and foreign concepts without the support that she clearly needs, and that’s familiarity. To be a newlywed and the only woman of colour in the royal family.. think how exhausting it must be just to exist in her world without navigating the stresses of motherhood as well.

To me, this really highlights the importance of the village the world over. It doesn’t matter who or where you are, without the adequate support, rest and self care there is no way we can thrive in the postpartum.

'Not many people have asked if I’m ok....' Why don't we ask 'how are you'? More often you're asked is your baby good or are they sleeping through the night. But what about 'are you ok?'. I wonder how much more mothers would speak up if they were valued enough to be asked.
