What is a Parenting Mantra?
parenting mantra is a short statement that reminds you of a quality or characteristic that you desire (or already possess) as a parent. It also might be things you say to yourself to keep yourself going or the children.

In this episode::

Catherine started a discussion in the Slow parenting :: Simple parenting community about Parenting mantras- “One thing I discovered last year that has added a lot of ease to my parenting and teaching is some “parenting mantras”.
For example, when there is arguing or complaining like “I wanted a red cup not a green cup”, I say “You get what you get” and it is a quick and easy way to end the discussion without a big fuss.
Another mantra I use all the time is “healthy food first”, when we are choosing lunch items or eating out.
So, do you use parenting mantras? And if anyone does, what are your favourites?

    just thought i would share the mantra that i use…

    it is pause…then parent.

    it reminds me to stop , count to 10 & breathe…. before i react to my kiddos (hopefully)…… so that i can get centered and respond with love and understanding!
