The Last Time. This poem is so true and will make you cry!! So many times we rush through life only to realize what we sometimes think of as inconveniences or routine end without us noticing until it is too late. Only then do we realize how important and special those "inconveniences or routines" were and how we would do anything to have them back for at least a little longer. Our babies grow up WAY too fast!!

Wonderful parenting tip
So true. Our kids don't give us a hard time... They are having a hard time.
Teach your child the lesson you want them to learn (true to their nature), rather than try to punish them into desired behavior.

#wendyyoung #buildabridge #build #bridge #punishment #parenting #kids #children #skills #behavior
At school, "punishment" = suspensions, ineligibility for activities, closer supervision. Teaching and supporting desired behavior ("building a bridge") is needed, before and after problem behavior occurs.
Instead of punishing, teach. Instead of hitting, hug. Instead of isolating, get close. Instead of coercion, cooperate. Instead of conditional love, love unconditionally. Let's build strong relationships with our children, set good examples for them, and allow them to feel all of their emotions. Let's say "I'm right here with you" instead of "Go to your room!" Let's say "I hear how upset you are" instead of "Quit your crying." It's time to change the way we raise our children.

I believe the problem is not a lack of discipline, but a lack of connection. For decades, we have raised children with fear (Do you want a spanking?), punishment (You're grounded for a week!), shame (You're such a naughty little girl), and coercion (If you don't pick up your toys, I'm throwing them in a trash bag!). We've become so wrapped up in "raising them right" that we've forgotten how to love them right. - Positive Parents: What's wrong with kids today?

The Rice experiment - this is pretty amazing. It is about the third entry down on her blog. AMAZING!!! Need I say it again! I think we are going to try this example of loving, positive words in our life.
Have you ever talked to rice? An awesome FHE idea
Love/Hate Rice Jar Experiment - Boil white rice & divide between two Mason jars. Label them "Love" & "Hate". Speak only kind words, in loving tones to Love Jar & mean, angry words to Hate Jar...a week later you'll see the Hate Rice starts rotting (on bottom), after 2 months the Hate Rice turns to mush, but Love Rice is still fluffy & white

Pinner says, "I created a "Safe Spot" out of a new garbage can. I used Clifford bone material to decorate it and pillows to make it more comfortable. Students can go to the "Safe Spot" to calm down, have some alone time, or just chill out with a book. I have a basket of materials for students to use, as well as visuals of stress buster strategies."
Kids were invited to use the "safe spot" not told they "had" to take a "break"! LOVE this!

I wanted to get frustrated. I caught myself when I looked into the eyes of this child & realized that the last thing they needed from me was shame. Instead they needed grace. I had the opportunity to either speak words that would hurt my child, or bless my child. Instead of venting, I stopped, took a deep breath, smiled, & said, “Here. Let me get you a new bowl of cereal. & let me wipe you up. Don’t worry about Don’t worry about the spilled cereal. I’ll clean it up.” PRACTICE GRACE NOT SHAME

#Laundry #stain removal #tip: milk - A glass of milk can be a delicious, healthy way to start the day, but spilling it on your clothes is not a-moo-sing (ok, neither was that pun). Milk stains need to be treated as soon as possible because it's a protein-based stain and can be very hard to remove once it sets in the fabric. But there really is no need to cry over spilt milk, because LR is here to help! *Image credit: Joel Montes de Oca (Flickr)
Great blog from a foster child's perspective
Sometimes we just over react... taking life too serious on the minor things. Life is too short, let it go and move it along. www.facebook.com/pinkpoleparty.org
Our words have lasting impact — either for good or for harm. In 25 years, the spilled cereal and milk and the inconsequential things that happened yesterday will long be forgotten, but my words can never be taken back. Grace, not shame, is my new mantra. Will you join me?
