Ep #70: Feeling frustrated and overwhelmed

February 19, 2020

When you are feeling overwhelmed and exhausted with parenting, what you want is parenting solutions. You want something that can help your family heal and move forward. The behavior skills on Smarter Parenting is what families need. 

The reason we are feeling overwhelmed all the time is that parenting is challenging, and because we love our kids, we want what is best for them. Parents don’t always know how to do that.

Some simple tips can help overwhelmed parents.

  • Remember: It’s because we love our kids and want what’s best that we feel frustrated.
  • Vent: It’s okay to discuss our frustration, and then we need to figure out how to use our frustration to help our kids.
  • Focus on the big picture: Determine what the ultimate goal we want is. Then using behavior skills, set up small steps to get there.
  • Be okay with slow progress: Change isn’t going to happen overnight--and that’s okay. Celebrate small victories and remember that small steps lead to something significant over time.

The behavior skills on Smarter Parenting help parents take their feelings of frustration and start working towards healing. Each behavior has steps that allow parents to know exactly how to respond to a situation.
