Patience, Persistence, and Play. Three words that can be applied to everything we do.
In the midst of an ever-changing flux of events and what seems like a never-ending emotional rollercoaster, these principles serve as a grounding reminder for me.
Summertime, normally filled with carefree, glorious days in which sunblock and BBQ sauce run amok, has been flipped on its head. Are you struggling right now in trying to figure out what your kids will do instead of summer camp? You’re not alone. (Welcome to Parent Camp ‘What-The-Heck-Am-I-Going-To-Do’?!)
First of all, take a look at how far you’ve come and all that you’ve done over the past few months. Give yourself a giant pat on the back, and recognize that your persistence has paid off. You kept at it, you’re a badass, and it shows.
I remember when my kids were young reminding them about "please" and "thank you" an infinite number of times. Fast forward to today. As young adults, their impeccable manners (at least with others) always win positive feedback!
Coaxing kids to eat their veggies can seem impossible, and as we ALL know, this requires copious amounts of both persistence and patience. That’s why I’ve put my heart and soul into bringing you our amazingly delicious and kid-approved soft-baked mini-muffins with ½ cup of undetectable veggies! Anything I can do to make your job easier makes me happy. Persistence in encouraging healthy eating pays off, as countless studies show how nutrition plays into behavior.
When we’re all cooped up together under the same roof, it can get a little crazy. I want to share some of my favorite ways to develop patience and stay playful with your kids, your family and yourself, especially when stressed.
I hope this helps you enjoy a truly joyful June. Share YOUR favorite tips or family moments with me on Instagram (@farmandoven) or at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll feature YOU!
