Tug of War
Is it just me or does parenting feel like a constant uphill battle? A power struggle between the wants of the child vs the discipline the parent wants to instill. It certainly is in my house with me feeling like I'm going to battle on a daily basis. I don't recall my parents having this constant tug of war with me or my sibling. Then again, we weren't fighting about device time, TV time, gaming time, etc. Maybe it's different challenges we face today vs in our parents' time, hence the stress of parenting seems never-ending. I hope I'm not the only one feeling this way.
