The Best Advice

Written by

My niece recently texted me asking for a favorite quote that she could write out for me. She loves 'lettering' and wanted to share her talents. Over the intervening days I have thought of many favorite quotes which to me, tell the 'best advice' to pass along to others.

Is it Worth Having a Big Family?

Written by

When I was recently married and saw mothers with four or more young children in the street, I thought that they were a little crazy or that they were irresponsible. I thought about how tiring it was to take care of my two nephews and I imagined the same thing only many times more...

Helping your young children to gain self-control by teaching them to sit still is something that can be easily practiced at home on a daily basis. Expecting your child to sit through a Sunday Mass or wait an hour at the dentist office is unreasonable if not taught and practiced at home. So where do we begin to teach this important skill?

So far we have looked at two ways to teach self-control in young children: the areas of Boundaries and Sleeping. In Part 3, we will explore the area of speech. A self-controlled person has mastery over his speech - as a rule, he does not use coarse language or a loud, obtrusive voice, nor does he interrupt and speak over others. In addition, he is charitable in the words he uses and the manner in which he uses them (articulation). So, how can we begin to teach this to very young children? 

In Part 1 of this series, Teaching Self-Control to Young Children, we explored Boundaries. One of the first boundaries a child is given is the crib, and then later, the bed.

TV in the Lives of Your Children

Written by

The TV is such a great tool! It makes our children stay still and quiet, avoids fights between them and keeps them clean!! Great!! It’s an easy fix. I can understand the mother of the children that we always see through our window: the TV is always on; cartoons are always there.

C-A-R-E

Written by

What we did as a family when it came to Lent and Advent, was to pass a piece of paper and pencil around the table and to invite everyone to write one or two things down that they wished for God to help them with, or something to improve in their lives.
