Speech Bubble Background

“I don’t shout anymore.  I used to be angry all the time, now hardly at all.  What helped? Kids Matter.  It helped to find other people to talk to. I am way calmer.”

“This week I have really tried to listen properly to my kids, and so I sat down when my son wanted to talk to me and he said ‘mum, you are really listening to me!’”

“Yesterday was lovely, just refreshing and going over things again. [My little girl] has come on leaps and bounds since the last get together, I’m so proud of myself and her!” 

“I’ve realised today that although I have anger issues, I am doing much better than I was a few years ago!”
