Oh goodness Deb, you are in deep with it all. It does eventually get easier. Like for maybe 5 minutes or so when they are 12, before they hit teens! :)

I'm sure you realise I'm joking, and I do hope it gets easier for you soon. It's worth it, but hard work when they are little. (And then before you know it, the time has gone and they are doing their last exams before leaving High school.) Take care!

Yes and yes. I have written something similar - that kindness enhances us. It's a gift to ourselves really.
I just love too what you say here: "We become increasingly stronger as a part of a collective than any one of us could ever experience on our own." I have been trying to find the words to express that for a post on the 1000V blog, and came over to read some posts from the link-up. Yours was the first I read and there it was - what I hadn't found the words to say!! Thank you!
And thank you for being part of this collective.

Well, I think it's great that you've got such an open and honest connection with Henry! Looking back from the teenage years, I really do mean that!
Parenting can be such a challenge, can't it? (And yes, I had a difference of opinion with a grumpy teen this morning!)
Interesting what you and +Kristi Campbell wrote about being the boss. My kids went through a self-assertive phase around about 4, and I remember looking after niece around that age when she wouldn't do what I'd asked and said, "You're not the boss of me." so maybe Henry's there now?

I'm a little late with posting my #1000Speak  for Compassion post, but I definitely did not want to miss out on participating!

With so much violence happening all around us, this post dwells on compassion in children. How and when do we start shedding the ability to feel for others?!

Took my kids to NYC a few weeks ago, so I wrote a practical guide on what to do with kids in the Big Apple, i.e. what causes the most/least amount of whining. http://bit.ly/1Gyvwqy

Aging has toughened me up a bit, but there are still some things that make me feel...
