Mothers of strong-willed children unite

{such a perfect picture for this post!}
So what I forgot to mention yesterday during our texas trip recap was how challenging our 3 year old is lately and especially during our time there, truly a pistol. I don’t think I’ve shared too much about Gideon’s temperament but it definantly falls into the strong-willed category and tests my patience on a daily basis, God bless him! While I can think of a million things I am thankful for that come with his personality like natural-born leader, matchless energy, and determination my parenting skills are a weak match to his big personality. We’ve tried many different disciplining styles to accomodate his willful spirit and some have worked others have not, so I’m curious can anybody out there relate? Any secrets to share or nuggets of wisdom for my weary soul?! Granted I tend to drag him to the ends of the earth on these trips and don’t hold to the strictest of schedules so he’s certainly not fully to blame
(part of my personality temperament!)
{Please don’t misread I love this child with all that is within, just praying to be more effective in his life and love to hear any tidbits of experience out there!}
