"The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice." #quote #kids
All the more reason why our lives as Catholic individuals and families must be oriented and lived in the liturgy. It is there that we encounter God and His salvation of us, and it is the Eucharist that allows us to live the life of God. The way we talk to our kids needs to be rooted in that, so that the inner voice that they hear loudest is God's, not the culture's. In its posturing narcissism, the voice of the culture is aggressive anxiety and insecurity, and a lack of substance.
The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. I don't have kids but this is so true!

even those annoying popular kids. even those smart honors kids. even your teachers. even the strangers you see on a daily basis. it's not just us, it's everyone.
Saving people is a really hard task - it won't always work. But what you can do is love them, make them feel special and let them know there's someone who cares about them and that their life is worth living.
I would like to make a card out of this and send it to all the teachers that told me daydreaming would get me nowhere.
This is something I struggle with every day, but I have made a lot of progress from where I was.
It's astonishing to me how many people can stop eating in the middle of a bowl of ice cream, and just let the waitress TAKE IT AWAY FROM THEM. I do not trust these people.
