Okay, so I know I’m a little late to the party with this new take on the iconic “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster, but “Keep Calm and Continue Parenting” has become a daily mantra in the N+D household.
I want to plaster this everywhere. It’s my desktop background. It’s taped to the fridge. I’m considering getting it printed on a t-shirt for each of my step-kids, so it’ll be front and center when we really need a reminder.
When your 12 year old suddenly decides he doesn’t like bacon and won’t eat dinner?
Keep calm and continue parenting.
When your toddler throws a screaming fit halfway through a four hour flight?
Keep calm and continue parenting!
When your teenager lies about whether or not he took a shower?
Keep calm and continue parenting!!
When your 6 year old spills a pocketful of marbles all over the floor of the library?
Keep calm and continue parenting!!!
I loaded the image up on Zazzle so you can get it printed on whatever you want, like this throw pillow. Although if the boy decides to dislike ONE MORE FOOD, I might throw it at him.
Soldier on, parents.
