ImageSometimes there are things we should say to our children, and things that we probably don’t need to say.

Rachel Macy Stafford says it beautifully in this blog in which we talks about how she learned to say six simple words to her children, and the powerful impact these words had.

I could think of many occasions when I encouraged, guided, complimented, and provided suggestions for improvement. Did that make me a nightmare sports parent? No, but maybe sometimes I said more than was needed.

Read Rachel’s blog here and be surprised.

Letter from an Elephant

Just came across a great blog that talks about a four-year-old coming of age – the time when he was allowed to eat nuts. Creating memories is such an important thing in bringing up children, and finding ways to help children mark important occasions is worth the extra effort.

I’m spending the day with my grandson, so these thoughts have added significance.

Thanks Adrian Pyle.
