parenting quotes I'm thinking about this week

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Absolute fact: if Tim Kimmel says it, I'm going to listen. I'm also probably going to agree.
I want to “raise kids who are focused upwards on God and outwards on others instead of solely inwards on themselves. When you raise kids who are humble, generous, grateful and serve others, your house will be a place everyone wants to come home to.” - Tim Kimmel, Raising Truly Great Kids

We get to go to an all-day training with Heather Forbes in November. I'm pretty excited about it. She is oft-quoted in virtually every training we've taken or book we've read about parenting kids from hard places. I'm very excited that the training is in our area and above all else, free.
It is when a child's behavior is taken personally, that the parent reacts. In essence, a parental reactionary stance is telling the child, 'You need to stop acting this way so I'll stop feeling this way.' Look for these unconscious patterns in order to stop shifting the blame onto your child for your own reactions." - Heather T. Forbes
