Parents need Help?!


Why is it that my older kids think they need to "help" me with the younger kids. For example if I ask the 3 yr old to give me a ball then the 14 yr old takes it from him and gives it to me. I don't know what he was thinking (the 14 yr old) but now he has taken the opportunity for the 3 yr old to be obedient.

This is not what I was hoping to accomplish. It is tough enough being a parent without interference. I guess that's just life. What I need to do is remember that the most important thing is the relationship that is developed between parent and child. That is not an easy thing to do. About the time you get it figured out they're gone.

Well this day is gone. I'll be better tomorrow.
