Children’s Book Highlight of the Month!

My children absolutely love the book: “We Don’t Eat Our Classmates,” by Ryan T. Higgins.

This book is creatively written and it always makes my kids laugh.

Even more, as a mother I love this book because it’s a reminder that we should “treat others how we would like to be treated.”

As we are all going back to school, this is a great book to incorporate into family reading time.

Enjoy!

Such A Great Reminder With The School Year Around The Corner.

As I watched this YouTube clip, I couldn’t help but share.

As a former teacher myself, it is easy to quickly “judge” a student by their behavior.

But I loved that Mr. Jensen dug a little bit deeper.

Mr. Jensen went crossed the grain and was able to help one student feel better about himself, and it was life-changing!

Such a beautiful message!

I think we could all use a few more Mr. Jensen’s in the world!

A Few Things I Have Learned About Parenting In The Last 7 Years…

It’s hard to narrow down all that I have learned about parenting in my last 7 years.

My cute oldest son

Disclosure: this blog contains affiliate links. This means that I get commission from any link you click on…but of course it’s at no cost to you!

A few things that stand out:

-Kids are very forgiving as we learn to parent them.

-I may be in charge of helping my kids learn and grow, but I can NOT control everything they do…even if I want to. It’s hard to send your kids to school all day and know that all that happens to them is out of your hands, however, kids do learn the best this way, when they are solving problems on their own. We can’t bubble wrap our kids through life, even when we feel like we want to. And I will admit, I want to a lot. However, I constantly remind myself to put my faith in my children and their abilities.

(Below is a video discussing a few things I am learning as a parent.)

What are some things you have learned as a parent?
