These Battles Just Aren’t Worth Fighting, According To Real Parents

Choose your battles. For many of us, this expression means very little until you become a parent — and then it makes perfect sense. Because when it comes to parenting, you have to choose your battles. A lot. Deciding when to be soft and when to be strong is a tricky balancing act. Virginia-based mom Katie, who blogs at Our Two Little Monkeys, explained what “choose your battles” means to her: “My youngest is in the throes of ‘I do it myself,’ and I have to pick and choose where to draw the line. Crossing the street without my hand? Nope! Feeding himself tomato soup? OK, but I’ll cringe at the mess the whole time. Safety is non-negotiable, and the rest is just a lesson in patience!”
