Stubborn kids

Aren't stubborn kids frustrating?  Why can't they do what they're told?  Well...let me give you a hint.  Even though it's our job as moms to direct our children and sometimes to even tell them what to do, they like to feel like they are in control of their world.

No one likes to be forced to do something even if it's for their own good.  You will have far more success if you manipulate the situation in such a way that they think it's THEIR own idea rather than yours.  Not fair, I know but if you end up in a power struggle with your kids, no one wins.

I think it's kinda funny how one of my children would tell me this great idea she had and in my head I'm thinking..."Uh huh, I've been telling you that all along."  Instead I just smile.
