“It’s not fair! I never get to do anything and you get to do whatever you want!”

My 11 year old stormed off into his room, slammed the door, continuing to fume and rage for a good while after.

I let him go. I could feel the heat of anger burning me up but I stayed put and took some deep breaths to calm myself.

These are big steps for me as a parent. A couple of years ago I would have gone after him. I would have rattled off exactly all the things he gets to do. In fact, I would have let him know every sacrifice I’ve ever made for him since the day of his conception. He had really hit a raw nerve.

Thank goodness that was the old me.
