Let’s talk about being consistent. What happens when we are inconsistent with our kids? I remember when my kids were little and I would say we are leaving in 5 minutes. Then, I would talk to my friends for another 30 minutes. Then, when I was actually needing to leave, my kids didn’t listen to me and I got mad. I wonder why! Because I said we were leaving so many times before when we didn’t actually leave. Why should they believe me this time? In what ways might you be setting your kids up to fail like I did? When you say something, follow through or tell them that the plans have changed. Kids need to be able to trust our words. Please share with us here how you struggle to follow through or to be consistent with your kids.
