B. Parenting

I just love a good parenting tip. I devour books, spy on people, steal ideas… I’m ruthless!

So, I’d be remiss not to share the practical parenting wisdom that has come my way.

Since we’re only a handful of years into this parenting thing, please pray that that these things are, erm, right. And if they’re not, pray that I pick up that tip real quick!

Joking aside, my level of confidence in each tip correlates first to its biblical support, second to the credibility of its original source, and third to the amount of general happiness and peace it promotes in our home. (For assurance that these things really work, check back here in 30 years when my children are raising their children. It’ll all come out in the wash then…)

Dig in!

(Oh! Before you do, would you mind reading this? Please consider my request that we see each other from God’s perspective: as new creations in Christ… it makes all the difference in the world!)
