Yesterday, I was told I often sound too harsh with the kids.  After a lot of back and forth, I came to a realization.  When I start to sound harsh, it’s because I’m right on the edge of feeling overwhelmed.  No one likes to hear that they are too harsh, me being no exception.  And I knew it already.  I just didn’t know how to stop myself.  But I think I may be able to make some progress now that I realize I’m becoming overwhelmed.  Maybe now I’ll know I have to step back from the situation.  That will be the hard part, because that means letting go of the sense of control.  So wish me luck while I try to chill a little.
