We’ve all experienced it. The moment that comes just after you’ve made an effort for your kid, and it is not met with any form of acknowledgment or appreciation. Sure, it’s not as if you’ve scaled an ice-covered mountain, but you feel you deserve to be acknowledged at least!
So when it doesn’t happen, you feel put out, disappointed, and maybe even angry and judgmental. And you begin to storm. But when a storming parent meets a storming child, there is going to be an explosion 100% of the time. There is another way to deal with this.
