What Not to do…

The video that goes with my post today wouldn’t upload. You can visit my Facebook page to view the 30-second video to learn what NOT to do, from me! Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/BeautifulHeartedParenting/ 
It’s of my sweet daughter, Brooklyn, and me from 3 years ago. Every time I watch it, I want to say, “Be Quiet! Give her a chance.” I can be so quick to jump in, but have worked on holding back so my kids can have a chance to figure out the answers, develop their personal faith, and overcome obstacles. If we are always quick to rescue, they won’t learn, and it causes frustration (which can be seen in the video!). Brooklyn knew something at 3-years-old that I clearly didn’t – the importance of doing it on her own. Humbling. Let’s take a step back so our kids have some breathing and growing room. “When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.”  Proverbs 10:19
