Lazy Parenting Confession

I genuinely believe that we mothers feel the need to keep on top of things all the time. We view ourselves as the fuel that keeps the family going, a juggler keeping multiple balls in the air. We can be looked on in awe by some or regarded as a basic clown by others.

Tantrums, disciplining and trying to avoid a parent malfunction
