#HeartParenting Giveaway – Almost $800 In Prizes!

This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for supporting this site. See my disclosure for more information.

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been given the opportunity to read an advance copy of Motivate Your Child. I wasn’t sure what to expect at first, but I’m so glad to be participating because this book has been offering sound advice page after page.  It’s real, down to earth, and void of “tricks” to get your child to listen.  It’s about self motivation – something all kids (and adults!) can use.  The root of responsibility lies in self motivation!

When you pre-order Motivate Your Child you’ll also receive $150 in additional parenting resources, all Biblically based.  If you’re not sure this book is for you, I strongly encourage you to RSVP for the Facebook party – and attend of course.  We’ll be chatting about the heart of Motivate Your Child, announcing this giveaway’s winner and giving away even more prizes!

You Have To, Because I Love You

Because I Love YouI may have mentioned a few hundred times that I have three teens in the house. Three male teens.  Three male teens that I work with every day to teach the basics of living – like household chores.

In addition to my teens, I have my two “littles” whom I also try to teach the same set of skills, at their own level. And it never fails to amaze me that I often hear the same protests from my teens as I do from my littles.

“Why?”

“I already cleaned that.”

“It’s clean enough.”

“I forgot.”

“Can’t you do it this time?”

And again, “Why?”

Sometimes I just want to scream “Because I said so!!”  Honestly, sometimes I do.  But more often than not, the echo of my heart is not, because I said so.  It’s “Because I love you!”

I know it’s no fun to scrub the bathroom. But it’s a skill you’ll need when you’re out on your own.

I don’t like washing dishes either. But you’ll better appreciate the work that goes into cooking a real meal.

I know laundry is mundane. But I don’t want you to be that kid at college who doesn’t know how to operate a washing machine.

I’m teaching you this because I love you.  I want to give you all I can for you to succeed.  I’m teaching you to do it well because I love you.  I want you to know the joy of a job well done.  I’m teaching you to do it again when you don’t get it right the first time because I love you.  I want you to recognize your weaknesses and strive to improve.  I’m teaching you all this because I love you.

Truth be told, I don’t always like this either.  Sometimes, it would be faster to just do it myself.  The dishes would probably be cleaner and I wouldn’t always forget to dust the trim around the end table. But then, then I’d be robbing you of what you need.  And I don’t want to do that.

Because I love you.

It’s the same reason God doesn’t give up on me when I’m tired of dishes and laundry and sweeping and dusting.  Because He’s growing me. He’s giving me skills I need in this life.

Because He loves me.
