I OFTEN CRINGE when I hear parents speaking harshly to their children. So I was certainly surprised when I found myself doing the very thing I so dislike.
My five-year-old, Zander, had begun speaking back to me—often with an obnoxious tone in his voice. I was uncomfortable when we were in public and he spoke to me like that—and I knew that I needed to find my peace about this. Then, after several instances of this occurring, I realized that some of what he was saying was in fact a repetition of what I had said to him! It was a harsh reality to me to find that I often spoke to my son in a hurried, demanding way—and not always with the kindest words.
