Claudia Flye Fletcher is trying to remain invested in my children without investing too much emotional energy in their drama. Not easy.
I had people ask me if I had learned the trick to doing that.
Well, after fretting my way through yesterday morning, i came up with one idea of how to do that. I'm going to call it the 24 hour rule.
I think I should wait an entire 24 hours to think about or emotionally invest in a situation with my kids, especially my "adult" children. Because really, within 24 hours the whole situation may have changed.
So that's my new advice. I'm going to wait 24 hours next time. Will probably save me a lot of time!
