Parenting is hard work!!! I find that I have more sympathy for my parents at school now that I have my own school age children. No matter how you do it, raising children is tough especially if you want them to have good character and know how to behave in a way that is respectful to others and to each other. Listening tends to be a constant correction in our house. I am tired of saying things over and over SO today I came home and created this....

Now in all honesty I don't like the winner part and that may change. I want this to be about making them better. For right now though it is a start. (BTW, the winner gets to decide what we will eat for dinner one night that week) I paired this chart with this verse from the Bible. I think this will be want we learn from it all. I used the pictures to help the non readers remember what the words say. I'll let you know how it goes after a few weeks.

Shanalea, I love it. I don't know how you've managed to be a teacher and a mom for so many years. I am really struggling right now trying to find that balance that is just right. Any ideas?
