blame or credit?

"It is only our bad temper that we put down to being tired or worried or hungry; we put our good temper down to ourselves." -C.S. Lewis

  1. HA! How true, how true. It is even easier to explain away bad behavior with our children! If Kathryn in cranky or whiney, I immediately want to blame it on teeth, hunger, sleep, etc. rather than just dealing with the discipline issue at hand. If you don't blame those times on something, you are admitting there is a problem, thus requiring a solution/follow thru! Scary!
