Pick and Choose your battles, you cant win them all and most of them are not worth an argument. Everyone wants to and NEEDS to be heard even KIDS! Let them explain or reason and listen.

when we make a change, it's so easy to interpret our unsettledness as unhappiness, and our unhappiness as a result of having made the wrong decision. our mental and emotional states fluctuate madly when we make big changes in our lives, and somedays we could tight-rope across manhattan, and other days we are too weary to clean our teeth, this is normal. this is natural. this is change. - jeanette winterson
