Educational or habit forming?

I was asked a great question this week about thumb sucking (thanks dear friend – you know who you are), and it got me thinking about all of those firsts… 544 more words

“玩具问题”的解决之道

你有没有注意到你的孩子在家的时候他不会玩他的玩具,但当他去其他小朋友家里时他却玩得很开心?其实有些玩具和家里的是一模一样的。

你是否尝试过用一个玩具盒把所有的玩具装起来,但在盒子最下面的一些小的玩具 就从来没有被碰过?– 特别是一些纸质的玩具被压在下面,都被压坏了。

你有没有经常对你的孩子说,“把你的玩具收拾好”?但是如果你经常这样说的话,你的孩子就会认为他不可以再和他的玩具玩了。–但是当初为什么你要买玩具呢?

哦!在晚上睡前你还得把这一堆玩具全部给收拾好!

所以我开始问我自己,为什么我的孩子在别人家里时会玩玩具,却不会在自己的家里玩,呢?可能是因为家里的玩具老是看起来一样。或者是说玩具都被堆在下边,他看不见。当我开始思考这个问题时,上帝给我一个很好的主意:

  1. 把你的玩具分成六个小组,分别放在六个不同的袋子或盒子里面。
  2. 准备一个低一点的搁板或者茶桌,旁边留一点空间给他玩。
  3. 在每天早上,拿出一组玩具来, 把它们放在搁板上排放好。记住,要使它们看上去有吸引力的样子。

当我这样做之后,我真的发现

我的孩子每天都会开心地玩他的玩具,对他来说就好像每天都有新的玩具玩!晚上睡觉前,我就不用再像以前那样需要收拾很多的玩具了。孩子高兴,我也高兴。

Black slacks met the ground as the small boy knelt on the floor near the chapel wall.

So this Santa thing...

Every year it comes around.  It you are like me, you are prepared – the presents, the decorating, the gardening and the food.  Lists everywhere…  But what does that have to do with the truth of Christmas? 448 more words

‘When we decided to write benedictions for our children, we simply wanted to help them find their anchor when they are inevitably tossed about.’

It’s half-term, and I have finally carved out some time to write benedictions for my girls – a practice I have been inspired to adopt by reading Osheta Moore.  620 more words

Starting Over

This one has been tough. Deciding to start over. There were so many reasons to stay at my old site, the traffic, the recipes, etc. But it wasn’t fun anymore. 282 more words

cherish the old soul
but diamond dust in my eye
her shiny new one
