I have really appreciated your guidance and learning about your eye opening approach to child rearing. But I have a problem. Its me. For whatever reason, I can not shake the guilt that I feel when disciplining my 7 year old daughter. If she tears up, it hurts me so badly inside that at times (after I have left the room) I find myself tearing up as well. I try and stay the course, but certainly it feels that my effectiveness as a parent is impaired. My husband is on board and shows "no mercy" with our child rearing. I know what I want, and that is to raise a good kid, and I know what I have to do. But please, help me with my internal turmoil. Help me with suggestions to change my emotional state during what should be "knowing its for the best" times.
