Learn Something New Sunday 12th September

After a huge row with my 8-year old over his homework, I was seething as I read Shimelle's prompt for today - all about learning from a situation which you handled badly. I overreacted to R's behaviour and the row escalated unnecessarily.
So, my lesson for today is: remember you are the grown up!
I'd love to be able to have full-blown tantrum sometimes (remember the TV ad in which a mum lies down in the middle of the supermarket and screams?), but I have to keep the peace at home; 2 volatile tempers is more than enough.
