How many people it takes to raise a child depends largely on the parents and if God is first in that home and their pride last. The farther down God is on the family’s collective priorities and the higher pride is, the more additional people it takes to teach the child to be humble and obey. Even one parent fully humble and obedient to God can raise an obedient, healthy child to adulthood. But humbleness is the key to it all. A humble parent produces a humble, teachable child that becomes a great adult more often than not. Pride is always an option for everyone but when trained to be humble from the get go, chances are much higher to stay humble. And that contrition is honored and blessed by God.❤
This is going to be an amazing homeschooling year! My son is in junior high now and is reading more and doing book reports so more good classic and historic information is getting in and he is working more independently and studiously. My boy is growing up and about to turn 13! And my daughter is reading now. And she is reading for fun and really soaking everything in. I am super excited because now we are thinking and learning and thinking for ourselves, always my goal.
I don’t want them to just regurgitate facts but really grasp concepts and think and wonder the feasibility if it all and extract their own thoughts and test them. This is true learning- understanding and incorporating truth rather than just knowing a list of useless information. And I am proud of the people they are becoming and are now.
My goal as a parent is to grow reaponsible, Godly, loving, useful adults who will be great Christians and spouses and parents that will spend eternity with Jesus. That is my focus and goal always and it is starting to work beautifully toward that end. What great encouragement God gave me today! Praise God!!!❤❤❤
Raising Accountable Kids: How to Be an Outstanding Parent Using the Power of Personal Accountability by John G. and Karen G. Miller. This book has transformed my parenting and understanding for the better. If you want to be a better parent, this book is a great start. It is amazing. ❤
Today, I taught my Kids’ church why we celebrate Independence Day. They had no idea. These kids were kindergarten through 5th grade and not one of them knew except my kids. And are they smarter than the other kids? Probably not, but they were taught by their parents. And here is my plea. Teach your children. You as a parent or future parent are 100% responsible for your children’s education. If they are idiots, it is because of your neglect or laziness. A good parent is a responsible parent. Period. A good parent is a responsible parent. Teach your kids. Teach them about God, history, math, life, right and wrong. Teach them. And if you are lazy enough to blame their teachers/schools, be responsible enough to demand they are taught the right things and not just any social garbage the morons in charge come up with that has nothing to do with a real education. I am calling out parents. You are responsible. Stop blaming and put the tech down and man and woman up. You have kids to raise and you are responsible for their education and knowledge of Jesus for salvation. You are. No one else. There are books to read if you never learned how, that is no excuse. Do it. Be proactive. Deactivate your worthless anti-social media accounts and be the parents and thus people God made you to be. It is on you. God will help also when you ask. Always. ❤
So, today was family chores day. I mowed, Zach vacuumed, Kathleen dusted and cleaned the glass and we all cleaned our rooms. We do chores so my kids do not grow up to be entitled spoiled brats. In fact, they do not get any privileges until they do their chores. Not one. No allowance, no tv, no video games. I do feed them but if they neglect their chores after breakfast, they have to wait for lunch until they are finished. This strategy works for us and my kids help me as soon as I ask them to. I believe it is our duty to lead our kids to be responsible adults and good stewards of what God gave us. Now for showers… lol. ❤
There is apparently a movement to minimize Father’s Day by “feminists” and I object. You see, what these hurt little misguided girls don’t realize is that we cannot have healthy babies without our husbands. In fact, our husbands are security in a world where other idiotic, selfish men can’t control their hormones or urges. Our husbands and thus babies’ fathers also work to pay our bills and provide for us so we can be weak when we are weak and strongly support everyone when we are strong. Fathers are invaluable to our children, adoring and protecting our daughters and teaching our sons how to be fathers. They are invaluable. And even when they do it badly in our eyes, they are there and thus are a rock for the family to cling to. And yes, some father’s completely blow it and take off and they devastate but those who stay are worth their weight in gold. My daddy (rest in heaven peacefully, daddy) was my rock and support with unconditional love for me all my life, and my husband is that for me and my children now. So feminists, shut your ignorant, divisive wounded mouths and I say proudly and loudly, “Happy Father’s Day!” Thank you, fathers, for all you do! You have my respect and appreciation.❤
The greatest gift we can give our children is Jesus because He is the way to eternal life in heaven. Those who teach their children about Jesus or take them to Sunday School to learn will be rewarded now or later and those who do not will be held accountable. Please remember that in all love and gentleness. It is on you. Your kids can’t get there without you. It is important. ❤
