"In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you." --Deepak Chopra

Nathan and I had a great discussion this morning about arguing. He's been in the habit of getting angry whenever things do not go exactly his way and especially when his little brother destroys his Lego world he's painstakingly created.

Our plan for the week? For one week, anytime one of us gets upset or angry, politely walk away and not discuss the situation until he's had time to calm down. I'll let you know how our little experiment goes. (For the record, I gave him several options on how to handle anger: Count to 10 and breathe deep; Instead of yelling, speak in an quiet tone until the anger in you or the other person goes away; Say a prayer even if you only have a moment.)

Remaining calm,

A sleepy mom
