This post is about Shirley, a parent, who never wanted to control her attitude. Shirley’s attitude negatively impacted her relationship with her children.
“The life skills workshop impacted my life because it helped me to learn how to control my attitude and temper. Before, I never liked to control my attitude. Before learning to control my attitude, I would be frustrated with everything! Now I don’t feel that way. I am able to bask in the great feeling I have when I control my attitude. It makes me feel better. I enjoyed reading “Behind the Eyes of Juvenile Delinquents” as it had stories to which I could relate. The book helped me to deal with some situations I previously didn’t know how to handle. I appreciate having taken the life skills workshop as I now understand my life more clearly and I have become a better person and parent.”
“Before learning to control my attitude, I would be frustrated with everything but now I don’t feel that way.”
Shirley is just one of thousands of parents struggling to control their attitude and temper. You might be one of those parents who have failed to model to your children how to control your attitude and temper. Like Shirley, you no longer need to be in bondage to your attitude and temper. Shirley found the keys to controlling her attitude and temper when she admitted she had a problem. Now, Shirley is better equipped to deal with her attitude and broken relationships with her family. Things will get better because of Shirley’s desire and commitment to build better relationships with her family.
Parents, if you have a problem controlling your attitude and temper, seek help. You will not regret seeking help as you experience the benefits that come from reduced anger and frustration in your life. You should always strive to do your very best to improve your attitude in order to be filled with joy and peace. Never let stress, frustration, and anger keep you from loving yourself, your spouse and children. Let your home become filled with laughter and joy. Joy is very contagious so allow it to infect your family along with teaching the skills needed for each family member to control their attitude and temper. Parents, you are your children’s greatest hope for success. Parenting is not easy, but when you do it right, your family will experience success from generation to generation.
Believe that one day your offspring will be sitting around the table or campfire reflecting on the love, warmth, compassion, grace, mercy, and listening skills you passed down to them and they in turn to their children. Parenting children should be fun and exciting during both the good times and the difficult times. Love and commitment are the driving forces that will help you to control your feelings and emotions in a very positive way.
Parents, we hope these words have inspired you to never let your attitude and temper destroy yourself or your relationship with family. Trust God to give you the strength you need to endure. Release your heart, soul and mind to Him and the blessings will come as you patiently wait.
