I love that they actually want to go outside, no matter what weather precipitates. Today’s simple science lesson was understanding what will happen, if you try to use cardboard to sled. Soooo, storage bin lids it is then!😂

As a mom, I think 2nd to discipling my kids about their identity in Christ, my main goal is to teach them how to feel feelings whether it is joy or happiness or sadness or embarrassment or anger.
.
Teaching them to walk through those feelings and come out on the other side of those feeling as whole people without hurting and hating themselves or others. I really believe when we have the capacity to feel emotions and not stuff hide bury medicate etc we have so much more capacity for purpose. We are't controlled and bossed around all day by them.
.
.
i’m a 47-year-old woman and itd still hard for me to sit in feelings of discomfort or feelings of anger or feelings inadequatacy. Sometimes even feelings of joy and happiness are hard. I used to joke that I would rather have no expectations and not be disappointed than I a whole lot of expectations and come up disappointed and that is just a crummy way to live.
.
One of our little people in our home is learning about feeling & how to deal with the bigness of them. I found these really cool things at target today and wanted to share with you. They are in the dollar bin. I bough the last two at the super target on Penn and memorial. I think they would be really helpful, especially if you have kids that get overwhelmed easily.
.
And I got my one mile walk in at Target and didn't buy the whole store. win win.

“Behold, children are a heritage and gift from the LORD, The fruit of the womb a reward” (PSALM‬ ‭127:3‬ ‭AMP‬‬). All parents make mistakes and get chances to redo; but if you evaluate the overall experience you had with your parent(s), were you treated like a gift or a curse, when you were a child? If you were abused, did you heal from the injustice, so that you no longer feel unworthy, inferior, or accursed? If you first renew your mind to the truth that YOU are a gift, might that change some things in your discipline approach?
.
“Fathers, do not irritate and provoke your children to anger [do not exasperate them to resentment], but rear them [tenderly] in the training and discipline and the counsel and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians‬ ‭6:4‬ ‭AMPC‬‬). Do any of your forms of discipline invoke irritation, wrath, resentment, or bitterness in your child? Are some of your discipline tactics exemplifying an eye for an eye, which leaves everyone blind? What might you need to change to actually disciple (teach or train) them and cultivate a heart change out of love, instead of behavior modification out of fear?
.
...Questions I’m asking myself, as I renew my mind from my own childhood trauma and investigate new tools to #BreakTheCycle.

“Mommy, its a happy hot chocolate!” -my 3 year old
💜🙌🏻✨🤣☕️
Seeing the world through kids eyes is SUCH a gift! Often time we are so busy with our schedules, our social media, our perfectly planned outfits that we don’t take time to just be still with them. 💜☕️
You’re kids have thoughts, ideas, discoveries, big emotions, and breakthroughs all the time that we miss when we fill the space with too much stuff.
💜☕️
Challenge yourself this week to see your world through their eyes. Find beauty in everyday ordinary empty cups of hot chocolate, imagine you’re in a crystal cave under mountains of pillows, and hang upside down off the couch together. 💜☕️
Don’t overthink parenting. At the end of the day your kids just want to play with you. And if you let them they will lead you on a new adventure of discovery, love explosion, and giggles will abound I’m sure of it! 💜☕️

I’m always on the look-out for new children’s books. This one is a keeper, for several reasons. We know that when read aloud, rhythmic stories can be calming and regulating for both children AND adults! The artwork in this book is delightful, and the message is uplifting for those of all “cultures, colors, races and places!” #littlespringsfarm #matthewpaulturner #whengodmadeyou @natural_lifemanship #wonderfullymade #naturallifemanship #tbri

#Momming is hard. This morning was that kind of morning that without Jesus and #etc and #tbri it might have turned out differently. It was just plain rude, disrespectful and hurtful around here. Now here I sit with regulated kids calming down and coloring. It was a hard fought peace. But in the restoration of relationship the actual knitting together of a family happens.

Hey y’all! Can we talk? 🧐 If physical touch is a primary or secondary #LoveLanguage for a child/adult, imagine how much more intensely corporal punishment may affect/may have affected them. In fact, if physical touch is a love language at all, how can we then use it as a fear-based form of discipline? Wouldn’t that pervert or skew their love language (how they view a form of love that they value; how they view physical touch in general; what they end up seeking outside of themselves for validation and healing)? How far is too far? Where is the #balance?

🧐Why is it legal for you to hit your child, but not your spouse? I may have the right as a parent to do it, but is it really beneficial or constructive? (1 Corinthians 10:23)
.
Why raise a child to use violence as a means of setting order and establishing power and control, or groom them to accept violence as discipline, and then arrest or ostracize them later for hitting their spouse?
.
Why aren’t parents expected to use non-violent means of discipline to inspire and elicit change and positive outcomes in their children, the same way educational staff are expected to treat their children?
.
Why do parents have a different standard of discipline for themselves than they do for #educators and law enforcement? Why can’t parents exercise the same level of self-control as educators and simultaneously manage their 2.5 #children, the way #teachers manage these unreasonably large classrooms?
.
Why aren’t more parents equipping themselves with the same techniques that educators and social workers and #MentalHealth professionals are legally REQUIRED to use?
.
Why is our requirement for a caregiver to rear a child more lax, than what we require of the village that supports those rearing a child? Wouldn’t it be easier on the supporting village, if the caregiver were also required to become better equipped?

#TheGracePeriod 🎁
“Let each one give [thoughtfully and with purpose] just as he has decided in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver [and delights in the one whose heart is in his gift].”
‭‭2 CORINTHIANS‬ ‭9:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬
.
...One of my fave scriptures to combat opportunities to become #codependent. People often perceive the purpose of our #light and naturally want to absorb it, because they recognize how it may fill an area of darkness in them. They are right to be drawn to it and can be very flattering. It takes resolve in our identities and a strong conviction about God’s instructions and #timing for our lives, to tell people ‘no’, when they admire and desire to utilize our gifts and talents out of season.
.
FOMO (fear of missing out) will knock at the door. Ego creeps in and says they “need” you and that perhaps it can’t be done without you. Don’t fall for it. Pay attention to WHY you are saying ‘yes.’ Are you saying ‘yes’ out of fear, instead of love? Have you fallen for the paradoxical lie that God’s omnipotence and omnipresence is limited to you and your abilities? Are you saying ‘yes’ out of necessity - a need from humans for love, acceptance, validation, a title, or money? Are you crashing in your own lane, because you said ‘yes,’ when God said ‘not yet’? Everything good ain’t God. Don’t just stay in your lane. Stay in His timing.

They took me to the brink yesterday. This happens every time their dad’s parenting time approaches, and I’m due for a break. I felt it more intensely, because they are home all day now, and cabin fever is more intense anyway with two ADD kids (suggestions welcome). So 🐝 hugged me and thanked me for being a good mommy, followed by begging me to drive to Target. She pooled her own change and what she found around the house during cleaning today, so she could surprise me with one of my favorite things - chocolate. AJ recommended I enjoy a quiet moment on a bench with my snickers, while they play in “Kid City.” I couldnt argue with that.🥰 #Mikvah

#American #Christians, regarding this notion that your #kids should stand on their own two feet at our society’s definition of legal age (18): Where is that example in your #Bible? What does your pre-Colonized, pre-Capitalized culture actually do? Imagine a #family model, where you support your #children well enough throughout their lifespan (interdependently, not codependently) that they build generational wealth, so that on the back end, they can afford to care for you better in your old age - instead of you struggling to survive on social security. Imagine grandparents, who are allowed to age gracefully enough to help mitigate your childcare costs and impart great #tradition and #wisdom to the next generation, right in the home. And yes, of course those grandparents would have to be “safe” people, not still toxic themselves, in order for it to work. If it can’t start with your parents, perhaps it can start with you.

Ok guys, im freshening up my resources so I thought I’d expand that to here as well. Foster parents, adoptive parents, send me all your fav books etc on parenting! The ones that actually helped😁. I need some new ideas! Needs to be Trauma informed and emphasis on attachment/bonding. For example-I’m a big fan of anything Karen Purvis has to offer and we practice tbri in our home. But we also use love and logic approaches. Send me all the ideas!

💜Your teen is using all the excuses in the world not to connect with you. It’s called “pushing you away”. And they are really good at it.
. 💜Choose to see beyond that behavior and connect with them anyway. Don’t think vacations, or buying fancy things, or going to big elaborate concerts (although those are great!)...instead think small.
.
💜Think about those small things you do everyday that help connect you to your teen. Send the message that you are still safe, you are there, and they are important to you.
.
💜Go for a walk, go for a drive and grab a sno cone, watch the moon on the lawn with cozy blankets, tell them a funny story about you, bake the neighbor some cookies. Whatever it is just open your heart to see beyond the facade they may be showing you and refuse to be “pushed away”. Image: @parentcue

😆 I know it’s corny, but I literally have been daydreaming about the day I could finally pull out my serving ware to make #healthy and #colorful 🌈🥬🍒🥗🥭 lunchtime presentations for my munchkins! Seriously, I’m ridiculously geeked about using all my glassware and everything!😂 I think it’s my inner soirée/ tea time/ party lover and planner.🥳 I’m so excited that they’re excited to explore the produce section with me! It’s a fun way to acclimate them to measuring, price per ounce, and budgeting.
.
It also gives them a voice and a semblance of control via their diet. After watching our toxic marriage, they tend to struggle with manipulation/control - especially my son, who was born during the worst part. Their little systems are used to being on edge, and each of them struggles with a form of anxiety. So I try to be cognizant of ways I can empower them to feel safe and in control. Grocery shopping is any easy one. It takes longer, but I think we will get into a rhythm and speed up soon. Right now I’m enjoying getting to know what they like!🥰
