No matter how much you love your children, parenting is hard work.(My 3 cuties in 2005)
The article you can read by following this link really made me think about the way that I react when I feel my children need correction (definitely an important part of our parenting role). It talks about the need to love them and teach them even before we need to correct them. They talk about a "parenting pyramid" which can help us focus on essential parts of our parenting that we sometimes don't think of being part of correction.
Aren't families great? I sure love mine!
