A very good read. 9 Things We Should Get Rid Of To Help Our Kids

I was raised this way, for the most part, and I have no problem with raising my daughter this way.

    I agree with most of that. Children need to learn respect and manners. Just not enough respect for others in this world lately.

      I agree with that as well. It fosters model behavior for when they are older.

        I agree too.
          Here is one of the points that you can save a lot of $$ on and still do it.. As I have just did -

          3. Birthday Party Goody Bag (Mentality)-I’ve been guilty of this like most of us. But, really? We take our kids to parties so they can give a gift, but they take a small one home so they won’t feel bad? It’s not their birthday. This concept of spoiling kids (which usually goes far beyond goody bags) is temporary fun. It’s okay for them not to be the center of attention....

          ***This is how - LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE FOR THINGS.. Be creative. You do not have to go to the store.. We had left over bubbles from our wedding 4 1/2 years ago..LOL.. and lotts of stickers. Both great for goody bags.. And we had paper bags.. Here is a photo from my Pinterest Account that you ladies can see. NOTE... The little bear that went in the bag was from the $1 store.. but everything else was from HOME... Blessings.. Judith http://www.pinterest.com/pin/220746819210718430/
