Plus, you will be a happier mom when you return home And if you were lucky enough to actually marry that person, the children are a reminder of that love each and every day. Hanging onto the shear memory of it isn't enough. You need to actually show your spouse, every day, that you love him.

In our house, if my husband and I are caught having a silly argument, we make it a point to explain to our kids why each of us is upset and draw a comparison to something they can relate to. Me: "Mommy is annoyed at daddy because he left me with one square of toilet paper instead of changing the roll. Me: "Imagine your brother drank a big glass or orange juice and only left enough for you to have one sip.
Would you be upset? Me: "But you would forgive him because he didn't realize how much was left. He was just filling his glass up because he was thirsty. He wasn't trying to be mean. This simple dialogue, comparing what we were upset about to something our child can understand, is a good way to let them know that mommy and daddy will be fine. No matter how rough a day has been, you can never hug and kiss your child too much.

They are also harder to forget, which is why you need to choose them carefully when scolding a child. Once you've all calmed down, explain to them that there are very serious consequences to be had from running into the street. What if a car were coming? If your child smacks another child in the face, it's perfectly acceptable to raise your voice and say, "no!
On the other hand, if your child throws his food on the floor during dinner, this may not warrant yelling as much as a stern look and, "no more food for you tonight. If you threaten your child with a punishment Sticking by your words is a big play in the motherhood game.

You don't want your kids not to take you seriously when the time comes. Empty threats could truly backfire, especially as they get older. You will lose credibility and then likely become frustrated. Whether you are yelling, or just threatening punishment, there is a way to be constructive about it. Whenever I've yelled at my kids, I made a point to go back once I'm calm and explain to them why I was so upset and lost my temper.
