To say @mehkisimeon had a rough week last week is an understatement! Everyday leaving the house was a struggle, like knock down, drag out tears. Frustrating for us both. We finally get to Friday and it spills over into school. So now I have to decide how to fix this over the weekend. One day last week we walked to school because I had a late work day. I had forgotten how fun that was. So Monday night while getting ready for bed I told him, if you get ready tomorrow with no issues we'll walk to school. For me this meant making sure I got up when my alarms went off and only having to put my clothes on when I woke him up. Every time he got off track Tuesday morning, I reminded him, if you get off track we won't have time to walk. That kept him motivated and WE DID IT, we got there before the doors opened. @themomonthemove posed a question and one of her followers said she prays with her children in the car before school. So we stood on the corner and said a prayer before walking in building. This sparked another conversation because it let him know prayer was for more than blessing food and before you went to sleep. I walked home, hopped in the car and made it to my morning meeting on time! It was just the first day, but that's how habits begin. I made an adjustment, learned what motivates him and we'll see if this one thing helps our morning routine, let's him get some energy out and have better days in school. We as parents have to be in tune with our kids and be willing to adjust when things aren't working. The things that are in our control we should fix. I told him he has to make school fun because right now that's his job. I have to repeat myself 50x's but it will sink in. Today he got the treat of riding with Grandma because she was working at his school. 2 days down 30 more to go! Next year we'll have to drive to his new school. #moneymanangingmommy #wisdomwednesday #momonabudget #blackmomsblog #singleparent #singlemom #budget #budgeting #budgetcoach #budgetcoaching #financialcoach #financialcoaching #save #savings #schedule #adjust #kids #parents #parenting #parentinghacks #parentingtricks #firststep #journey #learning
This is a reminder to disconnect and be present! I'm trying to become more mindful of my screen time around @mehkimoments I now turn my phone on silent when I'm around him and most of the time I forget to turn back on when we're not together. Saturday nights when he's gone I have it on but that's it. We have to be examples and be present with those around us. I'm a work in progress but he keeps me straight because he has no problem telling me to put my phone away. This is not disrespectful it's him asking for my full attention! Let's start hearing and giving our kids a voice. We as adults aren't always right and it's no problem when they check us. #moneymanangingmommy #momonabudget #blackmomsblog #save #savings #budget #budgeting #budgetcoach #budgetcoaching #financialcoach #financialcoaching #soulfulsunday #mothersofboys #bepresent #payattention
