Kristen Bell's hack for dealing with toddlers is an absolute sanity saver
Parenting is not for the weak.
Sure we all know that. Dealing with a tantrum-prone and illogical toddler will literally test your patience and sanity in ways you never could have imagined.
And sometimes the little fe**ers will get the better of you and you will lose your cool. It happens to all of us.
However, I must admit, when reading the clever trick Kristen Bell resorts to when she has had it up to here with her own kids, I could relate in so many ways.
Because sometimes, you just need to take a breather.
In ant interview with Us Weekly, Bell admitted that even she has a limit for how much toddler time she can handle. And her secret weapon looks a whole lot like ours, to be honest.
“We tag team,” she admitted, referring to her husband of four years, Dax Shepard. “We switch kids all the time. If I’m talking to the 2½-year-old and I’m done, I’ll just be like, ‘We’ve got to switch. I don’t want to talk to this kid anymore.'”
And she has good reason for her ways of dealing with headwrecking tots.
“It’s not about perfection but it is about being thoughtful and not reactive,” she told Us Weekly. “So in order to not be reactive, we switch kids a lot.”
