Keep Calm and Continue Parenting

By | February 3, 2014

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.

Keep Calm and Continue Parenting - Large square[6]

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.
