I'm a 33yr.old single Mother of 4 with a heart of gold. I would give my last to anyone.I love helping others. My likes are Giveaways/Contests,Deals,Freebies,Coupons,and living frugal.
My blog Shannon's Tales of Motherhood is a blog with giveaways, contests, deals, frugal living. I'm slowly working on it so my readers can know more about my life along with sharing stories. I want to share my life experiences and get to know more about my readers.
As a Parent we always try to guide our children in the right direction.We help them with the choices that have to be made and love them the best way we know how.
It is our responsibility as parents to make sure our children are doing what is right and staying away from negativity. It's only natural for us to correct them when they are wrong or when they made a mistake. We often punish them when they get a bad grade or when they fib.
We nag about the shirt they left on the floor or their shoes in the middle of the dinning room along with a book bag or toys. We argue with them to keep their room clean and to do their homework.
But.... WHAT ABOUT THE POSITIVE SIDE OF THINGS? Do we acknowledge them when you see an A+ on the lab report or when they do their homework without being told? Do we stop what were doing in our busy lives and say thank-you to our children for going to school and not cutting class today? Do say we are happy that no shoes or toys are laying around when they are picked up?
Do we ask how was their day and ask why when they respond with it wasn't to good?
Do we scream about spilled milk???
Today I challenge all of us as Parents to tell our children 3 positive things today. I challenge us all to take 20 minutes to sit down and let them know what the things are that you are proud of. I'm sure alot of parents are ready point out the positive things to their children and I hope no one takes this post in the wrong way.
I will be the first to admit I have to step up a little more and acknowledge more of the positive things my children do.
