"The moments you are trying to survive are actually opportunities to help your child thrive. At times you may feel that the loving, important moments (like having a meaningful conversation about compassion or character) are separate from the parenting challenges. But they are not separate at all. When your child is disrespectful, you find crayon scribbles on the wall: These are survive moments, no question about it. But at the same time, they are opportunities - even gifts - because a survival moment is ALSO a thrive moment, where the important, meaningful work of parenting takes place."
