What “Bad” Kids Need Most from Parents

If you’ve been a parent for any length of time then you’d have to admit that your little “angel” sometimes says or does things she shouldn’t. If you’re really honest you’d admit that, more than you’d like, you find yourself wondering, “What am I going to do with this child?”  Kids lie. Kids break things. Kids […]

God, You’re Scaring Me…

Who does a child call for when they are scared or hurt? “Mommy!” “Daddy!” Instinctively, a child looks for the person that can protect them and keep them safe.

Who’s On the Throne?

Who’s On the Throne?

Everyone knows who should, and who should not, sit on the throne. If the throne is in Buckingham Palace, we expect the Queen of England to take the throne…not some random visitor to the palace. If the throne is in the Oval Office, we look for the President of the United States…not one of the White House interns. If the throne is in a court of law, we […]
