My head is literally still spinning from the wealth of knowledge that I took in at the Hearts at Home conference. One of my favorite workshop sessions was about being a Parenting Professional. Here are just some snippets of what I wrote down… I hope you will see something that resonates with you, and if not, I am just thankful to be sharing it anyway.
-We need to parent in such a way that our children sing their song and sing it well.
- Out children are unique & different. They require short term, intermediate, and long term goals.
-Parenting professionals are teachable, they work hard to improve, and are NOT defeated by setbacks.
-Choose to be an encourager. Choose to be a positive role model. Choose to be present. Working with our kids makes them feel needed. Choose to discipline in love. Choose to pray. It helps them since their song.
-In instances, we need to tell our children to do what we ask of them immediately because their lives might depend on their quick reaction. (This struck a HUGE chord with me! This is so important!)
