Inspired by Jim Daly (Focus on the Family) who asked my kids, “Is your mom really a happy mom?” I decided to turn the camera on them to find out.
As I write about in Day 22 of 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Mom, “thick skin required” when it comes to being a mom! What they say might surprise you. I was surprised my some of my kids’ answers.
Let me give you a challenge…
Why not ask your kids tonight, “Am I a happy mom?”
If you listen with an open heart (and your sense of humor fully present), you may learn something from their answer.
It’s interesting and often helpful to find out how our kids perceive us. We certainly don’t need to thought of as Santa Claus, granting their every wish. But we don’t want to be Attila the Hun either!
Let me know how it goes…ask your kids tonight “Am I a happy mom?”
