“Better Mommy” CHALLENGE

The ‘Better Mommy Challenge’ This challenge was by no means created to make you feel any less of the amazing mother that you already are. This challenge is to be used simply as a tool to remind you of the little things we may forget during very busy and frustrating moments.

I came up with this challenge during a time where I was totally mentally drained and unhappy with my behavior. And at the end of my days, I felt so sad and I didn’t like myself at all. All because I would remember times earlier in the day where I may have lost my patience with my son or I had a moment where I was being mean.

I didn’t find it fair to my child and I felt like I needed reminding of who I’m dealing with and how to treat him the way he deserves to be treated. So ladies down below you’ll find a list of great things to keep in mind while going through your day as a mommy to your precious little ones.

  1. I do remind myself a lot that my daughter does not know right from wrong and make bad behavior a lesson for learning versus just scolding. I think this one is especially hard because they can be so terrible when they are very little, and it is hard to remember that they just don’t know any better in the moment when you are upset!
