When personalities clash

By Dr Bill Maier

What do you do when you love your child but cannot seem to get along with him?

All of us have days when our children grate at our nerves. With some parents, however, those days are the norm.

We all love our children dearly but sometimes their personalities are so different from ours that we clash with them at every turn.

Begin by reminding yourself that they are not trying to drive you crazy on purpose. They merely think differently.

Children are created with a unique set of gifts and qualities, and these things make them who they are.

Some of the very traits that you struggle to deal with when they are four years old may catapult them towards great things later in life.

Instead of trying to change your child’s personality, learn to embrace it. Even if you do clash in the process.
