Sand in My Sandwich

A Book Review

Sand in my Sandwich

I don’t know about you, but motherhood isn’t exactly what I envisioned it to be. Growing up, I thought I had it all figured out. I was always good with kids, getting them to comply and do what I wanted them to do. As a teacher, I was able to motive my students and encourage them to great heights. I thought I had this parenting thing in the bag.

Boy was I wrong.

Am I Ruining My Child?

Sad Child

My son’s tears course down his cheeks and it’s my fault. My heart hurts. I gave into frustration and lost my temper. My raised voice wounded this precious child.

Before giving birth, I had this whole parenting thing figured out. I taught preschool for years. I knew how to motivate children to do right.

Or so I thought.
