best parenting tip- to treat the ‘little things’ like big things because they matter the most to kids!
Ah, what I didn’t anticipate was being convicted by the parenting tips! That is a good one. I could give a good example from this very evening of a little thing being a big think to one of our kids… okay, several examples. 🙂
Most profound advice, that I come back to and fail at the most often: Today, the moment when I am most repelled by a child’s behavior, that is my sign to draw the very closest to that child.

Ha! Difficult–but probably good. I’ll try to remember that next time Thing 1 pushes Thing 2… or Thing 2 pushes Thing 3….
Just posted on FB. Maybe a few friends will see it and post too. Thanks for the giveaway!
We use the language of “making things right” concerning forgiveness and I find that it’s incredibly important not to simply have the kids do the heavy lifting – the parent needs to offer and ask for forgiveness as well. It’s too easy to let tiny things build up and later find yourself holding something silly against your child.
Expect the unexpected, lol!
HT is my homie. Cool to find out she’s really a girl. Does she like older guys? My 4 year old son is a cutie.
My primary value in relating to children is that my own personal entertainment nearly always comes first. Kids sense when I am genuinely having fun and I think they appreciate that and it helps me relate to them better.
Parenting tip: Take many photographs. Share only a few.
My tip is to pick your battles (don’t sweat the small things and don’t pet the sweaty things). Also, I shared in FB and posted on twitter
My parenting tip of the day is to have your 6 year old daughter pick out her clothes the night before so you don’t have to battle it out right before school!

I’m new to the toddler world so I don’t have any advice, so I guess I’ll just say “hi”
