Within the articles posted recently, I have tried to share websites with you that I have found helpful. I have often referred to them throughout the writing of my weekly articles for the Southern Arizona newspaper—the Sahuarita Sun.
I would also like to share an article I happened across about “6 Parenting Mistakes” on Empowering Parents. This is to show you that you are not alone and there is no such being as a “perfect parent.” The six mistakes that most of us make are not forgiving ourselves for losing our temper, for being inconsistent with discipline, for blaming ourselves for our children’s behavior, for doing too much for our children, for giving ineffective consequences, and for feeling as it you never have enough time or money to give your children. For more, see empoweringparents.com/article/perfect-parents-don't-exist-forgive-yourself-for-these-6-parenting-mistakes written by Sara Bean.
Sara also suggests giving them strong values, teaching them the value of hard work, saving money, careful spending, gratitude for what they have, and giving to others less fortunate are the most valuable gifts you can give your children.
I agree … hope you do also.
