Children have many ways of dealing with conflict and it's out duty as parents to teach which of these ways are acceptable and which ones aren't. Little Johnny can punch his little brother for taking his train or he may stand up and tell a parent or teacher...and every action in between.
My youngest daughter just turned 10 last month. She is at an age where I am beginning to wonder if I should have some type of talk with her. I feel like she is too young for this, but on the other hand, I don’t want her to learn all these things from the wrong sources.
When a parent loses a child, they often try and find a reason why God would take away their child. They need to find meaning in his or her death in order to make sense of it. In 2004, I lost my newborn primie son to an infection after six weeks.
With the Thanksgiving holiday occurring this week, now is a great time to emphasize the importance of giving to your children. Children do not naturally feel inclined to give; they would much rather receive. If you don’t believe this, just ask them.
Every parent when their child is a baby thinks they are going to be the next Einstein. As they grow, we find they have strengths and weaknesses just like everyone else. There is a small portion of children that are considered naturally gifted.
Thanksgiving is next week and as a parent, you should try to teach your children what this really means. This holiday is often overlooked for its significance and with the way society is today, it is important for parents to teach their children these kinds of values.
My wife and I had our children pretty close together with only a couple years apart between them. The oldest is seven, my middle is five and my youngest just turned three. The two older boys are definitely tall for their age, but my youngest is pretty short.
When your children are involved in various activities, they will commonly be selling things to raise money. My daughters have both gone through this many times, and lately I am learning just to pass these opportunities by.
Let’s face it: kids under the age of five can be very difficult to take pictures of. After two or three pictures, they’re already bored, hungry, or screaming, and you’re screaming your head off as well because all you want is one good picture.
When I was a small child, I didn't have to deal much with bullying in my school. It wasn't until high school that bullying really got bad and quite honestly it made my high school years miserable.
I was one of the nerdy kids who spent all his time in science classes and was an easy target for the other kids. I'm older and now I have my own children in school who have to deal with what is seemingly a far more mean group of children.
