It’s hard to embrace your screaming child.
Often because your child isn’t receptive when he’s enraged. Or maybe because you don’t feel very loving.
That’s a hard place for a parent, knowing that right now you don’t feel affection. All you want is to match your kids anger with some of your own.
Arguing doesn’t make it much better. Trying to understand doesn’t make it better. Words don’t necessarily help. Yelling certainly doesn’t help.
Get good at finding the shortest path from here to enveloping your child in an affectionate embrace.
Find that short-cut, and you’ve also found the quickest way to restore your relationship.
