How My Bad 4-Year-Old and I Found Our Way Home

An Honest Mom

There’s simplicity parenting, attachment parenting, parenting by temperament. Authoritative parenting, French parenting, parenting the spirited child.
And one I think we’re all familiar with: parenting by the seat of our pants.

That, whether I like it or not, is where I parent from most of the time. And let me tell you, the seat of my pants is battered and worn. As I have mentioned before, parenting Jo since I got pregnant with Cal has been no cake walk. We’re talking hitting, kicking and throwing things at me when I was pregnant, having big physical outbursts with other kids and trying to contain his massive physical energy in a small house with a newborn.

I sought advice everywhere I could—books, friends, my mom. I dissolved into tears while asking Jo’s teacher what I should do after his first morning of preschool, all while bouncing Cal…

You Can Win

Never forget your
dreams,
no matter how far
away
they sometimes seem.
Anything you dream of
is in sight
as long as the hope
within
sparkles bright.
If you’re blue
and you feel like God
has forgotten you,
remember that miracles
happen
every single day.
And God hears every
prayer;
his love is never far
away.
Anything is possible
as long as you have
faith in you.
And there’s absolutely
nothing
that you can’t achieve
or do.
Everything you need to
win
you harbor safely
within.
You only need to take
a step forward
and decide that it’s
time to begin.

Sometimes you feel
trapped and weary.
Sometimes it seems
like nothing has
turned out the way
that you’d hoped.
But remember that
you’re never alone.
God is with you
always.
You need only open
your heart to him,
and he will ease your
pain.
His light will cut
through the darkness,
and fill you with the
sparkle of renewed
hope.
He knows when you’re
worried.
He knows when you’re
feeling blue,
but he’s always there
to
lend you his strength
and to help you fly.
You need only have
faith,
and he’ll send you a
miracle.
You need only open
your arms,
and he’ll wrap you in
his loving embrace.
Let him fill your heart
with sunshine.
Let him touch your
life
with the light of his
love–
it will shine through in
everything you do,
and a sense of
unending peace
and happiness will
rule your days.
In order to fly with
the beauty
and grace of a
butterfly,
you need only
believe.

IT HAS BEEN SAID MANY TIMES that “Knowledge is power” but this statement is true only when that knowledge is organized,classified,and put into action.A more factual statement would be “Applied knowledge is power.”
“Education is the knowledge of how to use the whole of one’s self,”said Henry Ward Beecher.”Many men use but one or two faculties out of the score with which they are endowed.A man is educated who knows how to make a tool of every faculty -how to open it.How to keep it sharp, and how to APPLY IT to all practical purposes.
The prime object of education is power-ability to cope better with men and things,to become more efficient in the great struggle for existence.True education increases a student’s strength to grasp,to hold,to utilize-especially to utilize.Practical ability to meet issues,to solve difficult problems,is the test of power.It does not matter how much you know,how much theory you…

IT HAS BEEN SAID MANY TIMES that “Knowledge is power” but this statement is true only when that knowledge is organized,classified,and put into action.A more factual statement would be “Applied knowledge is power.”
“Education is the knowledge of how to use the whole of one’s self,”said Henry Ward Beecher.”Many men use but one or two faculties out of the score with which they are endowed.A man is educated who knows how to make a tool of every faculty -how to open it.How to keep it sharp, and how to APPLY IT to all practical purposes.
The prime object of education is power-ability to cope better with men and things,to become more efficient in the great struggle for existence.True education increases a student’s strength to grasp,to hold,to utilize-especially to utilize.Practical ability to meet issues,to solve difficult problems,is the test of power.It does not matter how much you know,how much theory you have stored up in your mind;if you cannot marshal your knowledge at will, and concentrate it upon the weak place, you are an impractical man and will not succeed.You must make every bit of your knowledge practical or it will not avail you in your success-struggle.
“A man is educated,”says Minot J.Savage,”who is so trained in his perceptive faculties,in his analytical powers-so trained in all his abilities of one kind and another that, put him down in the midst of difficult surroundings,he will be able to see where he is,able to understand what the occasion calls for,and able to master his conditions instead of being overwhelmed by them.The man who can master himself,and master his surroundings,wherever he may be,only give him a little time-he is an educated man.The man who is the victim of his condition and surroundings,with no practical ability or power,may know ever so much,but he is not educated.
Useless knowledge,then,is not education.Practical,live,and comprehensive command of one’s abilities,and the full development of one’s native resources,constitute the true education.”

The Conquest of Fear and Worry

HUMANITY IS PLAGUED by two insidious enemies.Million have been tortured by these arch-demons and many have been driven to madness by them.They have reduced God’s masterpiece of creation to failure and ruin.They are not the slums and poverty.They are not crime and sickness.They are not gangs of hoodlums and riots.It is true that all these evils are their off-spring.These great curses of mankind are fear and worry.
Fear and worry are responsible to a great extent for Americans’daily consumption of twenty tons of aspirin.Fear and worry contribute to thirty million Americans’need of barbiturate each night in order to get restful sleep.What mockery we have made of the Great Architect’s greatest creation!
Think of multitudes everywhere who are continually living in the slavery of fear.The minds and hearts that should be strong and powerful are rendered weak and impotent.Their energies are crippled,theiq efforts are paralyzed.Man was made for domination -to rule and control the circumstances about him.His mind was so constructed that it could accept or reject anything as he chose.The majority have chosen to let their lives be ruled by the demons of fear and worry. We want it that way,otherwise we would’nt ever open the door of our minds and let these demons in.We control our thinking.We can either think good thoughts or we can thing bad thoughts.The choice is ours and ours alone and no one else can ever control our own thinking.Others can suggest things or express things,but if the door to our mind is closed to the fear suggestions of others,they need not come in and be at home with us.
People are born everyday and people are buried everyday in between,what a funny lot.When we wind up in our last illness,we will pay the physicians or the hospitals anything-anything we own or can borrow-to extend life just a week,a day,an hour;yes even a minute.
This might not seem so funny to you,especially if you have seen the physicians,the surgeons and the team of nurses doing everything in the power of their skilled professions,to keep the life of your loved one,going,going,going,going for just another heartbeat-just another breath.
