Parenting is an amazing privilege and there are so many wondrous moments along the way. There will be times of absolute joy, deep pride, utter contentment and just plain old happy. Then there are other times.
Parenting with the heart in mind is about kindness, and treating our children as people. It means putting ourselves in our child's shoes by remembering what it felt like to walk through our own childhood. Getting in touch with those emotions and needs helps us to respond in loving ways.
