Responsive parenting includes noticing what is working or not working for you, and recognizing that how you feel when you are doing something is just as important as what you’re doing. If something isn’t working for you, be curious about why it isn’t and get support if you need it.
Remember, the most important thing is your relationship with your children. Find ways to prioritize the relationship, and things will go much more smoothly for everyone. There will always be laundry and dishes to wash, but your child is young for just a short time.
