“Choose your battles wisely. After all, life isn’t measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It’s not winning battles that makes you happy, but it’s how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.” ―
In this final segment of my series 13 Parenting Lessons from 13 Years of Parenting, I’ve saved my best tip for last.

Socks on the floor.
Toothpaste lid not on the tube.
Glasses on the edge of the counter.
Clutter on the steps.
Not doing homework well enough or at all.
Bad choices in school or with friends.
Really, the list is endless.
And we want to tackle it all.
But we can’t.
Not if we want a good relationship and our joy.
