The old saying “actions speak louder than words” is clearly portrayed in the parent-child relationship.  What you do as a parent can influence your child’s behavior more profoundly than what you say to them.  What pattern have you set in your home?

Phillip and Rhett talk about some concerns to keep in mind when it comes to technology, our relationships, and what habits we are passing on to the next generation.

 Many of us take full advantage of the benefits that modern media and technology have to offer in our daily lives and work.  Often, tech savvy individuals find it hard to disengage from media at home and consequently their relationships suffer.   In a revised policy statement on Children, Adolescents, and the Media, the American Academy of Pediatrics states their concerns about increasing media use in the lives of young people.  Are your family relationships negatively affected by the use of media in your home?   Phillip Telfer discusses the AAP policy statement, shares his own concerns, and recommends some helpful solutions to this common struggle.

Sometimes we need a good reminder of why we do the things we do.  I had such a reminder the other day and I thought I would share it with all of you.  I hope this serves as a reminder to you as well.

 

Take Time to See the Roses

 

My wife and I recently took our two boys to a museum and aquarium about an hour’s drive from our town. On our way there as we wound through the lush green hills and farms of northwestern Illinois, enjoying the sights we had come to love and had grown so fond of, a car came whizzing up from behind.
