Confessions of A Parent Coach

Frustration happens... then what?

Frustration happens... then what?

Struggles of a parent coach.  Hey, it happens!  I was sucked into rage and upset and directed it at my son.  This devastating moment happened when his cousin got hurt.  My nephew was bleeding, screaming and crying but my son was too busy defending himself (and his actions) to be concerned with that.  I really blew it, parent-wise.  SO where do I go from there?

Same as I would tell any parent, assess where things went downhill, create a calm moment to revist and debrief, choose the lesson for both and don’t forget to apologize, a few times!  When I told my son that I was sorry, he told me it was OK to make mistakes.  We got complete, learned a coping skill and moved on.  The nephew is ok too, thanks for asking!
