There will be times that discussions get tense, especially as your children approach the teen years. Here are three good reasons that you should take a break in those discussions:
- You are getting anxious, and anxiety is harming your ability to choose the right words and actions.
- Your child is getting anxious, and anxiety is harming their ability to choose the right words and actions.
- Your anxiety is making your child grow more anxious, and your child’s anxiety is making your anxiety grow.
Take a break and choose the right words as you quiet your heart.
