Good Stuff

I ran across a couple of great posts on teaching children to love the standard. This whole idea really resonates with me because I tend to be rigid. That is my bent. I have to learn to parent in this way and often that means going against the grain and my own first insticts. You should check them out. I hope they encourage you as much as they have me.


Loving the Standard

One Rule

And just a disclaimer: if you think the writer is advocating for crazy, disobedient, "free" kids, then you've missed the point. You might want to read them again.


  1. nikki, you are gorgeous (as is that sweet little girl). ;) i'm going to check those links out - thanks for all the parenting stuff you pass along and share. have you read 'grace-based parenting'? i haven't read it yet but have heard good things about it and have been curious about it for some time now.

  2. Tasha,
    Haven't read it. But if I come across a copy, then I definitely will take a look. You should do a book review on your blog! I hope you're doing well and resting your belly when you can. Great hearing from you.
