• One of the scariest things about having kids in my opinion, is wondering how you can protect them from the world that is today. As a victim of bullying (and a bloody culprit, even though I'm sooo ashamed to admit) I hate to think of my kids going through any of that shit. Every single day I make a choice to be patient with them, to not raise my voice or use violence, to be there for them when they're angry, happy, sad, tired. Part of that means encouraging their every feeling and never using consequences for feeling emotions (which sometimes toddlers can do in what some people would say - 'naughty ways'), all with the hopes that both my kids grow up to do the same to those around them. All I want is for them to be kind, understanding, brave and most of all - H A P P Y.
