Parents and kids seem to do a lifelong dance – at least for the first 18 years – between control and freedom. In this Happy Bit I share a parenting mantra I created that helps me focus less on control (and criticism) and more on the positives like love, warmth, humor and praise.

The Mantra:

My only parenting tools are love, hugs, warmth, humor and compliments.
