Not Naughty…I knew it (or did I?)

I love reading about the development of my children because it makes me feel SO MUCH MORE LESS INSANE!

Plus, I simply just love learning.  Therefore, when I saw this post, I knew that it was researched, written, and put into the cyber world just for me.

But then I thought—well, that’s selfish.  You may like this read, too!

And, so, without further ado, I give to you a brilliant post by Dr. Erin Leyba the post shared on Psychology Today that is categorized under “Joyful Parenting” and Titled “Not Naughty:  Ten Ways Kids Appear to Be Acting Bad But Aren’t” with the note underneath reading: Many of kids so-called “naughty” behaviors are developmental and human!

I mean—WOW, right?  Just from the title and note—I just KNEW this article was for me as I continue to guide and love and discipline and raise three:  Adelyne, Maxwell, and Josephine.

It already requires (takes/steals, whatever === smile and wink) all of my good looks and sanity and so many prayers—so I love when I can get a little perspective from professionals that don’t know me, my kids, or my messy kitchen and they write posts that remind me that I am doing a-okay because my kids ARE as awesome as they appear EVEN IF they are currently on the floor in a melt-down fit.  THEY ARE OKAY!

It’s time I let you get back to reading the article while I run outside to my balcony and shout out loud for all my village neighbors to hear that my kids AREN’T NAUGHTY!  They’re HUMAN!  And I’m doing an a-okay, bang-up job…

May these 10 perspectives really help shape your understanding, like it did mine.

And feel free to SHARE!  I know there are plenty out there that need this, just like you.  Just like me!

xo from here to there,
