We have the opportunity to create our children with every word that we use to describe them. Many times the words that we use to describe our children are the same words that we secretly use to describe ourselves. These words leak out when we are feeling frustrated. It is helpful to notice when your emotions are getting raw, admit your frustration and choose to identify the situation in a new way. 

When you can't catch yourself, have compassion for yourself! We all do the best that we can in any given moment.  ~ Suzy Miller
