Learning to recognize and control our emotions is a life long challenge. It is a perfect time to reflect on how our emotions impact on others. Don't forget.. our children watch us. They are our mirrors. They imitate our emotional responses. How often do we get disappointed by our kids' ability to deal with frustration? As mature individuals, we should stop and reflect on what WE can change in our own emotional responses and how WE can become a positive emotional role model for our children.
