Hi, I just found your site, looking for support for parents of challenging kids. We start school here next week. My oldest is in high school and my youngest will be starting kindergarten. I have been getting kids off to school for 13 years now, but I'm still panicking about dealing with mornings. My husband is at work. My son is essentially independent. But daughters 1 and 2 resist every step of the way. Then there's homework, which is a daily battle, and now I will have 4 who need help. And of course dinner and trying to feed picky eaters. Anyone else horrified by the thought of having to do this again day after day? I feel guilty that I often don't get them to brush teeth or hair, that they don't eat much protein and do eat tons of junk. I loathe making lunch, as there's seemingly nothing they are willing to eat (well, except junk food). I hate the whole after-school thing, as it seems like I'm constantly trying to get someone to do something they don't want to. It's an unending battle. And with the last one just starting Kindergarten, I look ahead to another 13 years of battles and just want to give up. How do you deal with the anxiety? the sense of not being good enough? the thought of years and years more of this? Sorry to be so depressing; this is why I'm looking for support.
