If you catch yourself yelling at your child when you step on Lego AGAIN even after you told them ten times to clean them up, here’s how you can try again this time not shouting at them.

This is the Try Again, Your New Mama Script Monday series on the Renewed Mama Podcast.

MOMS NEED A CHANCE TO TRY AGAIN, TOO

We give our children the chance to try again when they throw a temper tantrum, meltdown, or disrespect us or a sibling.  We let them try again to teach them how to respond in a better way.

Sometimes, Mama, we need to give ourselves a chance to try again when we don’t respond in the best way either.

So I’m sharing what you probably think or say, or how you probably respond that once it’s out, it makes you cringe with “That wasn’t so nice.  I should really apologize” even if you feel frustrated, annoyed, or impatient.

I’m helping you try again with a better way to think, to speak, and to respond to your children. We are learning and we are growing in this Mama thing.  We get to renew.  So here’s your new Mama Script.

HERE’S HOW YOU TRY AGAIN, MAMA

When you catch yourself shouting because you stepped on Lego again even after you told them ten times to clean them up, try again by saying, “I was not watching where I was going.  Whew!  It is painful stepping on your Lego.  Would you please clean them up when you are done playing with them so that no one else gets an owie?  Thank you.”

LEGO STORAGE SOLUTIONS

What if they are not done playing with the Lego?  Perhaps they are building a house or a car and you need to go somewhere, but they want to come back to their Lego.

Think about how can you make a designated area for Lego that isn’t a high traffic area?  Could you make a corner of a room the Lego domain?  Could you use a carpet square or rug and all Lego needs to stay on the carpet square or rug.  You can even use a plastic kiddie pool to keep the Lego inside the pool.  There are designs for Lego tables you and do yourself to keep them all contained in one area.

Lego are so fun. I love the creativity that comes with Lego.  Be a good problem solver with how you can keep Lego contained to one place so they don’t get underfoot.
