Fear Is What We Must Unlearn: Mindfulness And Happier Parenting

I'll have what he's having.
I went to bed, crying, the other night. 

I told my husband it had been a bad day. The children argued often. Our daughter was especially difficult at various moments. I lost my temper too much. No one listened to what I needed. It felt as though everyone, including the dog and cat, wanted something from me every single minute of the day

I felt disconnected, both from my family and from myself. It was my son's special night to fall asleep in our bed with me and when the lights went out he was on the far side of a king-sized bed feeling like I didn't want him there. 

So he cried. 

And I cried.
