Giving a GOOD show!


 

Parenting.is.tough!
  I will be the first to tell you, that the good does outweigh the bad tough!  I love my kids more than I ever could have imagined! 
But being their enforcer parent is one tough job.

NO ONE is perfect and trial and error is your friend through out parenting. Kids are so innocent and learn best by example. 

Each of us makes an impact, whether intentional or not, on the very people who will eventually be in charge of our world. 
When was the last time you were – in a store, in church, on an airplane - and noticed a child staring at you? What were you doing at the time? What imprint did you make in that little brain?
{now you're thinking..aren't you!}

There are so many titles under the job title 'parent.'


Making decisions, teaching them right from wrong, disciplining them, letting them learn the ins and outs of 'their world,' showing them endless love and being patient with them. 

{Do you see what I mean, these can be tough tasks}

 Encouraging them to learn, 'holding their hand' through tough times, being their role model, giving them hope, keeping them safe, teaching them values, showing them how to respect others and praising them beyond belief!


All these are your job as a parent! What a BIG job title! There isn't one of those things that doesn't go unnoticed by your children. They see everything. It will never be explained better to me than this...

"Children are little sponges and they are soaking up life's lessons, watching and learning how to fit into this world."

I say...
Our children are watching us. Let’s make sure we give them a good show!



 Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.
-Proverbs 22:6
