I picked up this book at the library and have been staring at it for over a week, seemingly lacking the ability to open it.
I'm scared of something, but I can't figure out what. Scared to actually label my child as strong-willed? Scared to try ways the book suggests for raising her and disciplining her, only to still feel like a failure that cannot relate to my child? Scared that I will love the ideas set forth, but my husband will not be on board? I really am not sure...none of those seem dead on. I know she's strong-willed, which means almost everything is a battle. I know I don't effectively encourage her and discipline her now, because I don't know HOW to, and I imagine that each day I procrastinate on opening this book, I lose a day of better parenting. So, why is it still sitting in the same spot I first put it over a week ago? It's due back at the library in five days, so I really need to conquer my fears and start reading.
