Response from Laura Crisci, Certified Prosperity Guide, email@example.com:
I think that there are many different ways to approach this common life experience. First, there is preparation. There is a tool from Abraham-Hicks called "Segment Intending." This involves setting your tone for the day as well as before stepping into each segment of your day and can be very useful in preempting any reactionary emotions. You will then walk into a situation with your tone already set and an expectancy for it to be matched. Second, if you find yourself being sucked into a vibration that is not what you wanted, in your awareness of that you can then reach for a thought that feels even just a little bit better than what you are experiencing in that moment and find your way back one better thought at a time. And third, if this is a common experience you can focus on (and journal about) things that you enjoy and appreciate about these people in your life during times that you are in a receptive mood and eventually that will become your dominant vibration about them and they will more naturally resonate with that expectancy when they are with you. Forth, make sure that you are practicing extreme self care so you are able to come from a positive and nurtured place yourself. The best gift you can give your family is being a truly happy parent and partner and you will have more patience and love to give. And last, a mantra of some kind is useful to keep you on center during the times you forget the truth of who you are and how wonderful life really is. Mine is "I have healthy kids and awesome hair and all is well." It has served me in virtually every circumstanceJ.
