CoT

I summed up my weekend in that there were a number of events which occurred, and I was unaware of how frustrated I was at those events. Seemingly a breakneck segue, I communicated I had really been frustrated by one of my kids’ actions and behavior. I communicated I was aware of it, and that he was just being 6YO and doing normal 6YO and that I still had more energy towards him than warranted. I said that I put myself in a “time out,” and it dawned on me that I was still sad and really frustrated at some events with which I led. I told PAX that I went back to engage with my son with whom I had been frustrated, owned that I was more frustrated at some events which didn’t involve him, and we moved on from it. The point, however belabored, was that I was basically taking out any sadness or frustration on my kid, and that I’m good for that as well as my wife. I owe it to them and to myself to accurately identify the problem, and respond accordingly. I encouraged PAX to perhaps take a second when they are energized to see if the person with whom they are about to unleash some fury deserves to be the designated target so to speak.
