I believe in goals and resolutions; I’m a coach, after all! I work with parents and families as we set goals together. Personally, I set annual business goals and biweekly goals with my accountability partner. Goals help us plan and accomplish our dreams.
But what happens when life gets in the way? How do we manage the bumps in the road? That’s when intentions are helpful for managing the load.
Our three kids loved the Chicago Museum of Science of Industry, with so many fascinating exhibits you could barely cover it all in a day! Plenty of preparation went into planning this day-long trip to the south side of Chicago.
“I just want to tell you one more thing before I go to bed!” “Can I have a banana? I’m hungry!” “I need to cuddle the dog one more time.” “I barely got any screen time!” Settling down to bed, staying there, and surrendering to sleep can be challenging for our kids with ADHD.
To this day I don’t know what it was that upset my son with ADHD; it all happened so fast. Finally off with our three kids on our cross country driving trip, we stopped for lunch in a small country town. Angry and upset, our son disappeared at a brisk pace across the street and out of sight.
