Here’s what most people do when weeknights are chaotic:
– They clench up neck, shoulders, and jaw, causing pain and headaches
– They shout at their kids, because of the chaos, and then feel awful afterwards
– They do absolutely nothing – and as a result they feel powerless.
Meanwhile, this weeknight is still a dumpster fire.
Eventually, most people conclude “this is just how weeknights are with kids.”
They couldn’t be more wrong!
