“My Kids Don’t Listen To Me”
Is this you?
Many moms land here from search engine queries that boil down to one thing: their kids don’t listen to them. This mom is weary of fighting what feels like an uphill battle for respect and well-disciplined children, and she’s looking for answers. She has a niggling feeling that things don’t have to be this way, but then at the same time, she can fall prey to discouragement and may doubt that there’s any other way.
Perhaps you feel this way sometimes?
