Raising a toddler and a preschooler, both very active, curious, and fearless, I sometimes feel like my entire day is filled with moment after moment of trying to prevent my kids from causing great harm to themselves. Or one another. Or our home. But it’s SO exhausting and deflating when you feel like your whole day is spent setting limits for your kids, stopping them from having fun, preventing them from exploring. Not only does it feel bad to have days where you’re that parent full of "NOs", it’s not effective. Our kids’ behavior does not get better as we point out all of the things they can’t do. It gets worse.
