Three Phrases For Kids

I found an article written by a parenting coach about the 3 phrases for kids! I started implementing it in my family a few weeks ago and I'm already starting to see the benefits! 

1. "Next Time" - the next time your child breaks a rule, crosses a line, or makes any mistake, instead of punishing them, talk about what happened, why it happened and what we can do better next time. Children are encouraged to strove for improvement in the future. 

2. "In This Family" - to help your children define their family's morals and practices. 

3. How Did You Do That" - whenever your child creates a work of art. This is good for their memory and language as well as their story-telling skills. Your child will delight when you show genuine interest in their creations.

It's Never Too Late - You're Never Too Old

We loved the response that we got from the C.S Lewis quote, "You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." 

Below are just a few of the responses that we received! 

Karen: My husband at 59, opened a popcorn shop. He is living his dream. Thanks be to God!!

Cindy: Amen to that! I'm 55 and am now finally the makeup artist and skin care tech I wanted to be for a major company in a major department store! Living my dream as long as my legs holdout! LOL

Bea: 48 years old going to RN school and training for a 5K color run!! Age is just a number!!!!

Jackie: I am learning to speak Spanish at 48 yrs old.

Nancy: Very true! 56 and finishing up a degree in ministry at Moody.

Charlotte: True dat! Ran my first 1/2 marathon last fall, at age 49! Getting my first degree this Dec. and will be 50 years of age in August.

What new dreams are you dreaming up today?
