Tuesday Tiny Tips

  • Family and Parenting Tip-TV Conversations 4/11/17

    One of the things that was great at getting conversations going while our kids were growing up was having a TV show we watched together.

    For us, it started with Little House On The Prairie. It was clean and great for discussions about friendships, marriage, people not treating each other well, death, faith, and the list goes on and on.

    We didn’t just watch, but took the time to talk about what we were experiencing on the show. We asked the kids questions and sat back and listened to their answers.

    As the kids got older, we continued the tradition by having age appropriate shows we watched together. Home Improvement with Tim Allen was another one that we enjoyed.

    Go ahead and make some popcorn and get the conversations started.

  • Parenting Tip-Courageous Parenting 4/4/17

    Be courageous as you parent.

    Here’s one for us all. Ask your kids no matter their ages,”If there was one thing you could change about me, what would it be?”

    Then listen and grow. Don’t get defensive. Just learn and grow.

    One time my daughter said, “You are perfect just the way you are!” I replied, “No really, come on. Give me something to work on.”

    She said, “Okay. Let me go get my list!”

  • Marriage Tip-Sarcasm 3/28/17

    I can naturally be a critical and sarcastic person. My mouth has gotten me into a lot of trouble in my marriage.

    Because of this, I have set a goal to pay my wife Carol at least one compliment a day.

    She knows it’s coming.

    She also knows it has to be 100% genuine to count.

    This has really helped to keep the criticism out of our marriage and has allowed me to stay positive and encouraging throughout the day.

  • Parenting Tip-One Word 3/21/17

    One Word.

    If you could describe your mom or dad in one word, good or bad, what would it be? Hero. Absent. Supportive. Angry. Loving. Drunk. Faithful.

    For me, the word for my dad would be “Loyal”. How about your mom? My mom in one word would be “Laughter”.

    Now, if your kids described you in one word, what would they say? Would it be positive or negative? If you think it’s negative, you can change that. Start today. Make a difference.

    Parenting is tough. Our kids don’t always like us. Bottom line though, they need to know we are always in their corner rooting them on.

    I know it’s a simple concept, but one a lot of people lose sight of in day-to-day living. Parent in such a way to have a positive impact on your kids, not a negative one. Keep that in front of you everyday in everything you do.
