Sometimes saying NO! can be a blessing. Allowing your child to sit in their mistakes and expecting them to take responsibility for what they have created is an opportunity for growth. We have become a society that doesn't want our children to "feel Bad" but in doing so we have robbed them of all their lessons! Sayings, Inspiration, Quotes, Truth, Thought, Children, Kids, Parenting
WHAT A GREAT WAY TO EXPLAIN SUCH A PROFOUND TRUTH. Words are forever! SH
Inspiration, Life, Quotes, Truth, Words Hurt, True, Power, Children, Kid
I absoltuley hate this. I hate this photo because it is so harshly true. Very good example of what words do especially to children. I hate parents that humiliate and down their kids for whatever reason. Words mean everything. Words can destroy, or words can bring life.
Words hurt, THINK before you speak: T- Is it True? H- Is it Helpful? I- Is it Inspiring? N- Is it Necessary? K- Is it Kind?
Your words have power, be careful. Speak life and love. Powerful!!!! My heart aches with this photo....Don't choke the life out of your kid with harsh words!
Your words have power, be careful. So true! I think a lot of parents struggle to understand how their words can carry through a kids life for a long time.
This picture breaks my heart and is hard to look, but it is incredibly true. I've heard so many adults say things about their children, assuming that they aren't listening or out of anger/frustration. Kids are listening! Build them up instead of tearing them down!!
“Sticks and stores may break my bones but words cannot harm me“ is not true. Words are more powerful than it is given credit for. Words can inflict massive psychological damage. Words produces and reproduces ideologies. It is a tool often used in the reification of culture. If words can inspire people through history, words can destroy people without even trying.
Very powerful picture. Teach our kids bullying is the cowards way. Adults pay attention to what you say, you can cause hurt! - Thankful I can protect my children from these awful people!!!!!!
Words have Power - use them wisely. Such a sad truth, especially with children!
Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.

"Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy." - Robert A. Heinlein ...it's so true! so many spoiled kids who rely on their parents in this world.
Don't handicap your children by making their lives easy. #Spectrumlearn #Quotes & #notes #FLVS #inspiration
So true. For new parents, giving them everything you have to give isn't doing them a favor. You would help them more by letting them know what it feels like to achieve it for themselves. In truth, too often we give to our children for the feeling we get from it.

Stuff, Quotes, Truth, Funny, Children, Child Control, Kid, Spanking
The Real Truth Is We Need To Control Our Children! Our Lord and Savior Is Right , Spare The Spanking and Spoil The Child.
Kids got spankings for doing bad stuff in the 80s. They usually didn't talk back to their parents - or any adults for that matter..... to right lol
~Putting this here because, "Mom, who made it illegal to spank your own kid," was her least favorite of my FAQs.
Kids got spankings for doing bad stuff in the 80s. They usually didn't talk back to their parents - or any adults for that matter. Ana only had one spanking in her life and Jimmy never had to have one. My kids totally feared my " I mean it" voice but they also respected me and still do today :)
STOP with the threats - a spanking did me (and fellow peers) a good thing! There is a difference between final punishment and abuse - quit trying to "reason" with children and teach them consequences.
It's not surprising that I see this on so many "Merica I Luv My Guns boards. I guess someone who doesn't care about protecting kids from irresponsible gun use wouldn't have a problem with physically abusing kids.
Yes!!!! Don't be afraid of your kids people! Be a parent not their friend. Spank that little brat!

made me laugh b/c it's so true!! I do this to my kids b/c it's a lot easier and works a lot better :)
Works great with stranger's kids who misbehave in a store away from their parents. You know the kind. They figure mom can't see them and no one else us going to dare to say anything. Until I come along.
This does work!! 😜 Yelling does not work! Kids and all people turn off their listening when you start to yell/scream at them. It's called abuse. TG Parenting is never easy.
Parenting. I asked my kids one day to start whispering when I found them whining for things because my ears hurt and I could not hear what they wanted.. It really worked for me and they stopped whining! Amazing! ( bend over and ask them to please whisper like this with their big girl or boy voice so you can hear what they are saying) It works!
LOL... Can't stand parents who yell at their kids! Great alternative perspective! So funny...
How to be a good parent. So true and funny at the same time!!!

Positive parenting. I know so many parents who expect kids to act with a better attitude then most adults do, not realistic at time they will act like children..... because they are. So true! I myself am guilty of this
Positive parenting. so many parents expect kids to act with a better attitude then most adults do, not realistic. they will act like children..... because they are.
Love this! We put too much pressure on our kids about a bad attitude, we are quick to say --->>"get over it", and "some kids in the world don't have clean water -so u try to humble your child. I agree, school is an overload and then dealing with kids that weren't taught to be kind. So they're allowed to have a bad day too! They still need us as parents, and still need lots of hugs and kisses;))))
So often, children are punished for being human. Children are not allowed to have grumpy moods, bad days, disrespectful tones, or bad attitudes, yet we adults have them all the time! None of us are perfect, and we must stop holding children to a higher standard of perfection than we can attain ourselves. Positive Parenting - Peace begins at home
Yes! I agree children need discipline but people get so judgmental and mad when a three year old is having a bad day. Your kids weren't perfect and neither are any one else's! So stop judging a parents parenting based off a one time meeting.
Positive Parents: use A Little Grace... it's not about being overly permissive, kids do need discipline. But they are little people. You know better, but sometimes you have a bad day and you say something that isn't nice, or you slam a door, or you yell at your kids. We aren't robots. Sometimes life is just plain hard, and we need a break, not a lecture. We need a hug, not a scornful look. We know we did wrong, but we're having a hard time. We just need grace.The same goes for our children. Use this as a time to teach.
Truth, we are entitled to these days & so are our children :-)

If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them, and half as much money. #kids #parenting #quotes
live simply~ so true! so many parents think to raise children well means to give kids things the never had like electronics, cars, and money but people forget to give them what matters most TIME, love and affection. That's how you develop a closeness that means your kids can tell you anything.
"If you want your children to turn out well, spend twice as much time with them and half as much money." ~Abigail Van Buren #children #money #life #truth #words #quotes #VanBuren
For me as a parent this could not be more true! My children grew up not being lavished in luxury. They learned how to budget and how to do without. When they were given something special they knew how to be thankful with grace. My kids turned out great! ♥
this is a great quote to always remember. It's not about the quantity of their toys. It's about the fun time spent playing with them. Kids will play with a cardboard box if you transform it into a toy train or princess castle. Remember, we aren't baby-sitters. We are helping parents raise a child.

Teaching our children.../ Some of this I agree with, much I don't. Life doesn't actually treat people this way in the real world!! Our kids no longer develop tools for coping and learning in the real world with this cum-by-ya approach. Very unsettling to me that this is considered the proper paradigm!! I believe it's failing miserably.

so thankful for everything my parents taught me instead of just doing for me. i'm definitely a better person for it
SO true! My children are very grateful for all that they have. I'm sure seeing both of their parents work a full time job everyday, definitely is showing them nothing in life is free and you have to work hard for a living. We definitely implement chores for all 3 kids (yes, even our 2 yr old) so they have a chance to "earn" money, or something special they had been wanting. Guidance is definitely key, so our children can have a successful future and know that hard work pays off, you can't depend on anyone in life but yourself. #RaisingSuccessfulChildren❤
So thankful my parents taught me things... even when I didn't want them to!

Inspiration, Life, Quotes, Choice, Truth, Universal Paradox, Wisdom, Thought
You Are Free to Choose but You are Not Free from the Consequence of Your Choice. A Universal Paradox #quote
that little voice inside that sometimes comes out and says go ahead .....listen to it but remember once done you must live with the choices you make..... The fear of making quote on quote the wrronng decision is what scares me the most. Not knowing what my fate will be whether I hold it in or tell the world.
In our life we are free to do whatever we please. However, this freedom can lead to consequences which we must face. You can avoid these consequences by living a good life and obeying the laws, but if you choose not to, then you must face what ever comes your way. This quote shows the importance of being in control of your own life; you choose what happens next.
nicely said...every choice has a consequence . . whether it be a good consequence or bad, there is still a consequence! I feel like people are too often quick to judge as if their situation is worst off or better. Truth is, you're living with your choice.
"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!" Deuteronomy 30:19
You are free to choose but you are not free from the consequence of your choice #quotes #inspiring #inspirational
Freedom is not free. #choice #truth #wisdom
Food for thought. #Inspire #Quotes
Universal Paradox That is not a "Paradox or Contradiction". It is the Word of God. It is the TRUTH. First the beginning of human creation. God gave the first man, Adam and Eve, "Freedom of Choice". Whether they wanted to serve and obey their Creator and Live. Or whether they wanted to serve and obey the Creation and Die. And those who are familiar with the Biblical account. Know that Adam and Eve chose to serve the Creation, Satan the Devil, the Serpent, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Bad. And as a result they paid the consequences of their actions. Which was "Death". Without ever Living Again. Adam and Even did not have a "Covering". Someone to cover their sin of disobedience against God's commandment of not "Eating of the Tree of Good and Bad"( Genesis 2:15-16, Genesis 3:1-24, Romans 5:12-21). Adam and Eve thought that they could "Serve two Masters"( Matthew 6:24). And they were dead wrong. It is either God or Satan. But not Both. Thank God that Christians have Jesus Christ whose "Blood covers our sins". And if and when we error or sin. Because of our Faith in Jesus Christ who died for our sins by God's Grace we can be forgiven of our wrong and still not perish but have eternal life( John 3:16-17, Acts 4:10-12)
Motherhood is choosing to not be narcissistic with your own needs, wants, and agenda. It's so easy for some mothers to turn a blind eye and claim ignorance instead of stepping out of the roll of, "friend" and into your job of, "Mom". I love that my kids know above all I will always lead them towards the right paths and I love them more than life itself.
