When you’re sick, and dad is sick, the best remedy is rest. Our kids clearly think this is bs, so I took the Nigel Latta track this weekend. Say what you mean, & have something as a good behavior carrot.
Any raised voices, off they go to time out. Took all day Saturday but I think they get it now. The quieter I am, the scarier I am. And if they’re quiet, they get to use the remote control. M insists on the yellow car (the blur above). So far he is smoking the other two. And me.
