The Three C's - A Belated New Year's Resolution

Actually this was a New School Year's Resolution. I just haven't gotten around to blogging about it. Anyway....

I do hereby resolve to aspire to uphold the Three "C's" of parenting:

1. Calm - Ohhh, this is a toughie for me. But I can't expect the kiddos to keep their cool if I'm losing mine.

2. Consistent - Say what I mean and mean what I say. Why is this harder with #8 than with any of the others?

3. Caring - My children need to know that no matter what, I care deeply about them. This is easier to convey if I can remember #1.

Since I made this pledge months ago, how am I doing in achieving these goals? Well, some days are better than others, and God is still continuing a good work in me. :-)

  1. I need to work on these myself....everyday,lol. And calm is the hardest for me too, its good to know that I'm not the only one to struggle with it. All 3 are very important and I think I will right these out and post them around my home to remind myself ....everyday:).
    Thanks Laine, I always find good and useful stuff when I get on your blog. You rock:)
