X is for eXcuses and eXplanations

Sorry readers, it's been a busy month and in addition to our sister sites of Money Saving Parent and A to Z Learning Tree we had all our regular work to do.  Ok, so I'm a cheating a little bit on the X factor but my rule of thumb is to write the first thing that comes to mind.

eXcuses and eXplanations
Oh we have millions of them, some of them good, some of them bad.  Some of them need to be said and some of them don't.  Here's the trick though, finding out when you need to use your excuses.

Uses your eXcuses when you need to say "Excuse me"
Don't use your excuses for any life decisions about your family, your money, or your career. There is no need to eXplain or eXcuse whatever decisions you make.

eXplain to your children why they need to do something but don't get caught up in making eXcuses for their behavior when they don't.

These are just a few examples, but next time you feel the need to eXcuse or eXplain something, determine if it really is anyone else's business or if it really even needs one.
