The "scream"

So, I acknowledge many weaknesses that I have. Now to do something about it.
For the last 4 weeks I have been attending the Triple P parenting class. I knew what I was failing in so went with a mind to improve those specific areas. It confirmed to me that the things I noted in my own parenting to be bad, are in fact bad. It also confirmed that I already knew how to fix them. The course was very good, and while there wasn't much new stuff that I hadn't already been aware of by gleaning books and from my teacher training, it did motivate me to actually implement them into my daily parenting. Funny that, huh? I actually need to implement them to make any difference!!
While I am doing a lot of things well, there are some things that need a LOT of work. I'm starting by giving myself weekly challenges.
Challenge for the week:


As you learnt from my previous post, I have a temper. So #1 on my list is to reign that temper in.
I'll let you know how I go.


  1. Haha! Oh dear - I was expecting the worst when I saw the title of your post -
    I was actually relieved when I read it :)
    Good luck with your goal this week. I know that 'luck' is not at all the right word! I hope it goes really well :) Are you going to replace it with something else? It's hard to just stop... :)


  2. I intend to carry a stress ball with me everywhere and squeeze..... very tightly.

  3. i did an overview of triple p for a uni assignment like 12 years ago. It is meant to be a good program
