The free webinar tonight is packed! In fact, so many of you signed up that Amy McCready opened a new Webinar for Thursday night to handle all the overflow. So if tonight didn’t work for your schedule, you can now sign up for the Webinar on Thursday. And, as always, it’s free.
I love how passionate you all are about growing as mothers! You’re amazing!
I also wanted to make a couple notes about tonight. First of all, Amy’s course is not a faith based curriculum.. Since most everything I write about *is* Bible based, I thought it would be important for me to let you know.
I’ve taken her full course and have just learned SO much from it, that I thought many of you might benefit from her ideas too. I especially like the format. It’s a mixture if videos and articles and tools. It’s been great for my learning style.
As with any parenting information, you may love everything she shares tonight or you may disagree on a point or two. In either case, here is a post I wrote a few months ago that I think is a great reminder for us anytime we find a new resource
Thoughts on Learning
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.
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.Leave a Comment
