From our previous post on Handling Misbehavior, we established the three groups of misbehavior in kids. We also discovered that not all misbehavior should be rewarded with punishment. In this post, we look at another type of misbehavior – misbehavior that stems out of selfishness.
“…Typically, parents often believe that once a child misbehaves, that child deserves to be punished.
But, should every misbehavior of a child be followed by punishment?”
“The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.”
“LORD, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.” – Habakkuk 3:2 Dear Daughter, God’s reputation precedes Him. He’s a God that is Worthy of our trust.

“A Checklist as you prepare for your newborn…”
“As a Daughter of God, it is the ‘why’ that drives you. It is what gives your life the momentum to keep moving. So, why are you here, and how do you discover that purpose?”
Sometimes as parents, we want to leave our kids to chance, or to some ‘other person’ to be taught about some issues of life. In our present times when Sex has been trivialized and made so cheap, it becomes an uphill task trying to teach our children the importance of sexual purity.
I love this great idea of showing kindness. As daughters of God let’s remember the virtuous woman: “She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness.” Proverbs 31:26 Show Kindness Today.
“…in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgements, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.” Deutoronomy 30:16 Dear Daughter, God is not under any obligation to bless and multiply you if you’re not willing to Love Him, Walk in His ways, […]
“…If there’s so much love, why do we have so many unresolved issues? Why is it that a number of us feel frustrated and feel like the other person does not love us as they so claim to do?”
“If you consider the career milestones, social dexterity, and entrepreneurial escapades your mates or at least women are making in the society and world at large, it may just make you feel insignificant and look like you are not doing much.

“Get Your husband to listen to you”
Do you wonder why it seems as if your kids’ ears are blocked when you give them instructions? When others speak to them, they are quick to respond. When mom issues an instruction, the ears suddenly become blocked. I am sure you identify with this certain character trait in your child.
“No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.” – Unknown It’s a new month already! And in fact this new month is already rolling by. If the fact that we’re in another month doesn’t wake you up, what will?
