I did something very wrong yesterday. And I hope I learn from it.
Hubby was frustrated with the kids being roudy for a while. Then the kids spoilt the child safe gate at the kitchen entrance and it got hubby raising his voice at them with blaming words. After a while he took the cane and went to the kids.
Ever since I attended the Appreciation Education Talk in March, I focused more on good communication with kids when the do something wrong.
So the sight of hubby taking the cane stomping into kids’ room freaked me out a little and I verbally interrupted him, saying he is not getting his message effectively delivered with a “scare” tactic.
After that, my hubby told me I should have intervened in front of the kids. I apologized as I agree I was wrong.
I then realized that I should have trusted my hubby more. I shouldn’t have intervened and should have trusted that he knew what he was doing.
I hope I learn from this and not to over react next time.
TRUST is important in relationships.
