Addressing the conflict so we get a break

This was supposed to publish yesterday but apparently got hung up in the queue. Better late than never. ☺

The kids are going to their grandparents overnight. We had a long talk with Gavin about his behavioral choices that have been creating conflict with his brothers. We focused on a few areas:

  • You are NOT their parent
  • You DO NOT tell them what to do or correct their behavior
  • You DO NOT dictate ANYTHING

We needed to keep it simple and yet make our point at the same time.

These are the main sources of conflict and he needs to be watched very closely because he does this all the time. Anyway, he did better the last time and I’m hoping that will be the trend moving forward.



I think Lizze and I are going to stop by and visit my Grandma in her new nursing home. She’s having a rough time with the change.

Anyway, I’d love to say we have some grand plan for the evening but the truth is, we’re both exhausted and likely going to crash after getting something to eat. Exciting right?
