A Word of Caution
I have a philosophy on knowledge. It’s this:
Learn from everyone.
The world is filled with all kinds of people. Good. Bad. Smart. Um…not smart. Humble. Proud. Rude. Kind.
The reason I encourage you to have a mission statement is so that you’re not swayed by all these people. You know who you are and who you want to be. When you see something admirable, even if it’s buried in ugly, you can still learn from it and let it change you.
“Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.”
As we share parenting resources, it’s important to remember that no one is an expert on your child, except you.
In every book you read, video you watch or bit of advice you receive, there will be chaff and grain. It’s your job to sift it. Don’t just run with everything presented to you. Pray about it. Listen. Then move.
There are a lot of resources I love. And none that I agree with 100%. My children are unique and I do what I believe to be right for them.
“Chew the meat, spit out the bones.”
Be bold. Be confident in the role God has given you and fight until you find what works for your family. Whether the “experts” agree or not.Leave a Comment
