Mother’s Day is magic!  For most moms it’s the one day when everyone is focused on meeting Mom’s needs.  The good news is it doesn’t have to end.  With good boundaries and communication skills, you can encourage a higher level of support from your family all year long!

Three tips:

1.    Cultivate a strong belief that your family WANTS to be helpful and supportive of you.   It’s a more respectful way to treat your family and more likely to get a positive response.

2.    Notice and give thanks for every supportive act!   Make sure the energy and attitude of your home reflects the belief that everyone is extremely helpful!

3.    Ask for help often, and use language that suggests you know your family will step up!

Shift your beliefs and attitudes and watch the small shifts your family makes around you!   Happy Mother’s Day!
