Some good advice: When I was a young parent I received some good advice. I was told that when my young child would have a difficult time in public I should simply say, "We're working on that" and let it go (for the moment).
It makes sense. Training is something we do in private and if we make the standard excuses for our child- "she's tired" or "she's just shy"- we are just reinforcing an acceptable reason for poor behavior in our children's minds.
I still think that is good advice.
While I was "lifeguarding" today I caught this moment.
As my friends Kendra and Dana are always so graciously reminding others, we often show only the "sunny side" of life, so I thought I'd post this not so sunny moment. We all have them.
And you know, "We're working on that." : )
