I'm reading a book called Scream Free Parenting. I would like to learn to do a better job with my kids, especially Macey. I LOVE Macey. But I do not love her tantrums.
In Chapter One the author talked about how many years ago kids were expected to be seen and not heard. The author alleges that we have gone to a new extreme where kids are our entire lives -- their homework, their soccer practices, etc., and we just become fancy drivers from activity to activity. He believes that we need to find something in the middle where we take care of our kids and ourselves.
So, where is the middle ground, and how do you find it? And avoid the guilt?
