Today’s Parent magazine took an online poll, in which 58% of parents responded that they sometimes say yes when they wish they’d stuck to no. So if you’re struggling with being consistent and not turning into a marshmallow, take heart that you are not alone. It’s tough to stick to our guns when the going gets tough, but it’s most definitely worth it in the long run. Just think: the more consistent you are now, the sooner the behaviour will change, and the less you’ll have to face the temptation of giving in!
