Will it work?

Will it workWill it or won’t it work?

Some days it does and some days it doesn’t and other days it’s a bit messy.

I truly believe though in never giving up no matter how tough, messy or ugly it gets. When it comes to parenting and being the best parent I can possibly be, I’m committed, because they are mine ( I have two little people), the absolute loves of my life. And something I dearly believe with all my heart is, that if there is someone they can always be able to trust to have their backs (even when they’re being naughty or nice) it’s us, their parents.

Recent FB comments on a post questioning the Top 5 Tips for smooth school mornings, on whether they will or won’t work got me thinking…. It will and it won’t.

Based on you. Based on you adding 3 key ingredients into the mix.

# 1 BELIEF
If you believe (and I mean truly believe) – not half heartedly, somedays you have one foot on the bus and some days you’re half out or off the bus

# 2 ACTION
If you act and take loads of action ( whatever it takes to get up those big hills)

And

#3 PERSISTENCE
If you persist (keep at it, day after day, week after week and year after year)

Then you will make it work. There is no such thing as overnight success, a magic pill or instant cure – blimey, there are days I do wish there was!

Parenting is one of the toughest jobs around (my belief) and we are all doing the best we can with the resources, knowledge and ability we currently have.

Can we get better at it? Yes
Can we learn and improve? Yes
Do we stuff it up along the way? Hell yes.
Is it worth every minute of learning, tweaking and being the best parent we can be? Absolutely!

So will the tips work, will the School’s Coming Routine Kit work? It’s like everything, it is what you make of it. It’s what you believe it can be for you and your family. It will be what you implement and put into place. And it will reflect the persistence and commitment to yourself and your child.

With 13 years of schooling ahead, or wherever you may be along the journey, please keep believing, keeping acting and be persistent.
