When Personalities Clash

What do you do when you love your child, but can’t seem to get along with them?

All of us have days when our kids grate at our nerves. But with some parents, those days are the norm. We all love our kids dearly, but sometimes their personalities are so different from ours that we clash with him at every turn.

Begin by reminding yourself that they’re not trying to drive you crazy on purpose. They just think differently. Kids are created with a unique set of gifts and qualities, and these things make them who they are. Some of the very traits that you struggle to deal with at four may catapult them toward great things later in life. Instead of trying to change your child’s personality, learn to embrace it. Even if you do clash in the process.
