Death is a distant rumor to the young. Andrew A. Rooney
Death is a weird topic to blog about, I know. But here goes. So…Friday I attended the mock funeral of my oldest child. Why in the hell would I do that, you ask?

It just describes so well how I feel sometimes.… Continue

Every week, my 7 year old, DJ, has to memorize a bible verse. As a pastor, it pains me to say this, but he hates it. Tonight, for whatever reason, he was a real bear about it. But one thing that's cool is as DJ learns it, so does the rest of the family. Tonight, I had to laugh, when DJ started
out of frustration & Andy spoke up & finished the verse for him. Here it is, in case you wanna learn it too:"Don't let anyone make fun of… Continue

Who has lost track of your child for a minute? A few minutes? Come on, I know I’m not the only one who has had that shot of pure panic at Target when one kid was begging for a toy and the other decided to play hide-and-seek under the clothing racks.

The public perception of bullying is that bullies are acting out to cover their own fears. They may indeed be afraid, but accepting this as a reason makes bullies sound like victims of their fears -- like we're supposed to feel sorry for them and not hold them responsible for their abusive actions.

If you and your spouse take opposing roles in dealing with your kids, you’re not alone. Many parents take on the roles of “good cop” and “bad cop” in the family. For instance, Dad is the kid’s best buddy, and mom is the nag. Or dad is strict and mom is a sympathizer.
