You're preoccupied with work, school, children and other responsibilities that you tend to forget what it means to enjoy your inner peace. Bringing peace into your life is easy.

Several months ago, our son was born and we moved into our own home. Almost immediately, our daughter began pulling her hair out, sometimes in handfuls. Doctors have said she does it for attention and we should just ignore it. That's what we've done but it has not stopped.
