calling for advice
So, I need advice. I want my house to have a good spirit. However, that seems to be an impossible achievement. "Why?" you may ask. Well. In one word I would describe it as "HUNTER." The kids seems unable 85% of the time to be capable to say anything without a negative edge to his voice. Also, he is so sure of himself, that it makes him sure that no one else can do anything the right way (mostly Lilly) and he must make sure to tell her of each of these things, in a condescending edgy voice "Well...You can't do..." I would say that maybe I am an example of these qualities. However, I truly feel like I try to use a kind or at least a level voice. And I definitely don't call attention to everything that the kids cannot do correctly, nor do I try with the adults in our household. I am constantly so frustrated. It helps that Hunter is in full day Kindergarten, however, it just starts the minute he returns home (or wakes up in the morning) if he is actually interacting with the family. So, I risk everyone thinking my son is a beast and that I am a failure parent in hopes of hopefully getting some ideas.
