Love People who hate you.
Pray for People who Wrong you.
It won’t just change their Life, It Will Change Yours.
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. ~ Matthew 5:44

Don’t worry about loading up your cart at the toy store to aid your kid’s development. Here’s how many toys they really need.
Before having my son, I had seen one too many living rooms taken over by toys. I was determined that my own house would never be filled with plastic blinking contraptions that would inevitably become tripping hazards and leave my husband and I howling in pain. But, like all the other things I said I would never do, I found it difficult to avoid once I actually became a parent.
Whatever It is You Want to Do, Do it. You Only have So Many Tomorrows. ~ #TobyMac #SpeakLife
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” ~ Matthew 7:24
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23
Parenting is a delicate balance of convincing your child they can do anything in life,
Simultaneously screaming “Don’t do that!” every three minutes.
You can help your child improve this executive function by building some working memory boosters into his daily life.
- Work on visualization skills. …
- Have your child teach you. …
- Suggest games that use visual memory. …
- Play cards. …
- Encourage active reading. …
- Chunk information into smaller bites. …
- Make it multisensory.

Parenthood is one of the toughest things to deal with out there. Whether you have one kid or six, it’s the hardest job in the world. But it’s also one that, in recent years, has really fallen by the wayside.
Gone are the days of disciplining children. Gone are the days when little Johnny is super busted for failing his spelling test. Instead, we blame teachers, coaches, other parents, and other kids. It just can’t be his fault, we insist.
Sadly, it’s not his fault, but yours. You want the best for your kids. We all do. But ultimately your doting is costing them character, and that’s a big price to pay.
Seven things we need to stop doing as parents, lest we face the wrath of a bratty child.
