something to think about

The husband and I have been talking a lot about losing our cool with the kids lately. How ineffective it is at accomplishing what we desire and instead the sour fruit that is yielded from our sowing such ill seed (or bad example). Seems God is working change in our hearts and this post pulls again, drawing my heart back to Him.

ITU... i'm reading the book "how to talk so your kids listen and listen so your kids talk". it's interesting. parenting is hard.

Amy ... thanks so much for posting this. My husband and I were away this weekend at a retreat and we talked alot about this. I am working hard at trying to lower my voice and whisper when I begin to get upset - it seems to help as I actually watch my words more when I am not yelling. Go figure. ;)
