Tonight I lost my mind on my son. I need some coaching for sure.
I am a coach myself and I have been having a hard time accepting my son for who he is. I know that as a coach, I can choose my thoughts around my son, but my primitive brain is so automatic when it comes to him. It feels like there is no choice between the time he “misbehaves” and I fly off the handle.
He has school work that he has to do and it’s very important to me (as a parent boundary) that he does it. However, no matter when I ask him to do it he says no, regardless of the outlined consequence which is no camp and no electronics.
However, I want him to do his school work. It matters to me. I am not sure how to get him to do his schoolwork and not lose my temper over it.
Any help at all is appreciated. TIA
