7 Positive Parenting Principles

Please take the following principles to heart. If you’re a parent I already know that you want what is best for your child but being that you are a parent I know it’s not as easy as it seems. Parenting has it’s highs and lows and some days you may find yourself wondering if you’re doing your best job. Here are seven principles for powerful and purposeful parenting.

  1. Value discipleship over discipline. Yes children need to be corrected when they are being disrespectful or unruly and that is where effective discipline is required. However, too many children have not been intentionally taught the values and virtues needed to succeed. Discipleship provides an opportunity to model and guide your children to righteous living.
  2. Parents are children’s first teacher. You have the opportunity to lay the foundation and set the standard. What are you doing with that responsibility? I hear many parents complain that the schools aren’t doing enough for their children but it’s mom and dad who make the difference.
  3. What you do in the early years determines the outcomes for later years. Kids are sponges in the first few years, give them good things to soak up! A solid well rounded experiences in education, social experiences, and life skills are critical. Don’t omit the filling up of these years or you’re going to have a problem come middle school and high school years.
  4. Aim for the moon and you’ll reach the stars. No matter what always aim high in your expectations, standards, goals, and vision for your family. Constantly praise your children for what is going right because it will continue to propel them higher and higher.
  5. Content creates character. What they are exposed to will show up in their lives. Diversify the books, magazines, music, TV shows, video games and activities that you’re children are seeing. Watch and get involved with the programs. Just because it says it’s for kids doesn’t mean it’s in alignment with your vision for your family.
  6. Children spell T-I-M-E with L-O-V-E. The best course of parenting just comes from spending time, being involved, showing up, being present, and listening. Sometimes our kids are “talking” to us just by the things they aren’t saying. Seize every opportunity to show your love.
  7. Every child is different even in the same household, with the same exposure and resources. Value their individuality. In our family mission it states that each child is a part of the same body. Each person is essential for one function. Help your children see that they are needed, valued, and appreciated for being just who they are and who they are becoming.



Five Must Have Books for Women’s History Month

It’s Women’s History Month and it’s a wonderful time to focus in on the strong and smart women who have lead and made a difference in our world. Exposure to this history for all children provides an opportunity for inspiration, education, and enlightenment. Having a diverse bookshelf is extremely important to our family and I hope that you make it a priority for yours as well.

Create a Family Mission Statement

A family mission statement encapsulates your idea of the good life and lays out your family’s purpose, goals, and standards. What do you want to see your family accomplish? Your kids accomplish? Your spouse? What standard will you hold everyone accountable to?

Create it. Print it. Post it. Live by it 🙂

Love It Lists: Math Games for Elementary Aged Students

Math games are a great way for your children to practice their math skills. If you have a techie kid I’m sure you won’t have to pull any teeth to get them to the computer or tablet for a little practice. With so many online math resources there are a few that I specifically love and recommend.

There are a few things I look for when choosing sites for my children and students. One is the number of advertising. The number of websites that are banking on students to accidentally click on their Google ads is ridiculous. I look for minimal or no advertising so that my children can stay focused on the site and work I have them completing.

7 Youth Activities to Fill February with Love

February is here and while our hearts and minds are focused on love I figured you’d be thinking of activities both you and your children will love. While we love them whether these children are your own or ones that you teach or mentor, we want the purpose of these activities to be to build a stronger personal relationship. Relationships are hard to navigate in childhood and adolescence and in the age of “Netflix and Chill” many young people have lost the art of conversation and connections. They heavily rely on the trusting adults in their lives to lay this foundation.
