My wife and I both occasionally get passionate about our particular approach to raising the little guy. We are 94% on the same page, but it’s those last 6% that are not as fun. Right now as the little guy is going into eating solids, there is some disagreement between the two of us about how to get him there, and rather than coming to a unified agreement we are for some reason stuck in a cold-war style resolution pattern.
A friend of mine sent this to me today randomly, and I thought it was the perfect message to pass along to all those other parents out there who sometimes take it all too seriously: The CTFD Method. It stands for Calm The F*ck Down, and basically it is a funny way of pointing out that everything will be just fine, relax, don’t get all worked up about things. It was published first by David Vienna a few years ago, and now he has a pretty funny website called thedaddycomplex. Check it out, laugh a little, and don’t forget to take it easy on yourself and your partner – it will all be fine. 🙂
