On those days when I become overwhelmed and my patience is wearing thin, I like to remember this quote...
Download free jpg of 'Children Learn What They Live' - it is 8x12" or any 4x6" ratio
... it helps me to remember to be Tolerant, Encouraging, to Praise, Accept, be Honest, treat with Fairness, give Security, and be Friendly to my children, for that is the sort of life I want them to Live! I saw this quote at a Dr's office, it struck a cord in me, and I LOVE it! It helps me remember that to raise a patient, confident, appreciative, loving, honest, fair, secure, faithful, and friendly child I must first treat him or her so! I hope it helps you feel empowered to be the best you can be for your child too.
As I work to find the "niche" for this blog and our preschool here at home. My dear husband found a wonderful looking book on Amazon called Mommy, Teach Me: Preparing Your Preschool Child for a Lifetime of Learning, I have only read the introduction from the "Click here to look inside" link on Amazon (A great little feature that lets you preview parts of the book) if you have a minute - go read her introduction, my favorite page is pg 7. It is SO good and so empowering! You can teach your children. I am going to be saving up for this book! Enjoy!
Soon I will also have a free .psd template file for this quote as well so those with photoshop can replace the photo with their own.
