Press the Pause Button

PAUSE.jpg

Pause.

Such a simple word but also so powerful.

And I don't think moms use it enough.

When our kids are going nuts and things are chaotic, often what we really need to do is to press a pause button. But, instead, we often get nuts with the kids and start yelling. Then they push back. Then we yell more. And then they get even louder and before we know it, everyone's crying in their rooms. UGH.

I made something for you to help. A pause button. 

PAUSE BUTTON

We all need one from time-to-time.

So click on the button above to download a pause button to hang on your fridge. I've included a script for you to use when you're being asked to make a decision you're not ready to make.

I'll have to get back to you on that.

That's it.

If your kids persist, then respond with my 3 Magic Words,

Asked and answered.

Oh, and by the way, this method works on grownups, too.
