How to Talk to Your Children

How to talk to your children, brought to you by famous sales trainer and mother of 5. This is one of my most favorite episodes. Back in 2009 Dani Johnson, of multi-level marketing fame talked with us about her book *Grooming The Next Generation for Success.* She gives detailed examples of how she talks to her children. You will be amazed at the good results.

Next time, what she said then about the porn assault on children. Then, it might have been news. Next after that, we will share with you from someone else’s podcast, a successful attempt at getting porn directed at children out of a municipal library — and the vicious reaction. It is really time to think.

For now, while you are all cozy with your family during these holidays, surely you want to think about how you speak with your children.

Rescue of Children – Sex Abuse Rings Busted

In our series of the great rescues that God did over this Passover season, we are going to cover a rescue of children from sexual abuse rings. We will not talk about the horrible details. I heard this from a ministry I trust. I could not find examples during the exact week. What I did find was reputable, conventional news sources reporting this regularly over the last 3 years or so. I had not really heard much about it. Had I mentioned elite people participating in child sexual abuse, with or without idolatrous religious connections, and/or law enforcement stopping and prosecuting same, I would have been mocked as a conspiracy theorist. However, apparently, this indeed was going on. Obviously, anyone who would do such a thing would like to keep it secret. That it is regularly being reported that there are “busts” is a good thing — if we can assume that these reports are true. If even half true, then some children were rescued. If there are ongoing abuses, let alone a trend, then more and more children are being rescued. Future children won’t be abused, thank God.

This Passover/Resurrection season surely has been amazing. We are in a regroup now, a shut-in time (hopefully shut in with God), in order to be released into working in the Great Awakening manifested on Pentecost. I think many of us are being awakened during this time. We are finding new news sources, and sloughing off old, corrupt ones. We are discovering corruption in most sectors or society. Our eyes are being opened to the creeping evil and resultant slavery even in our own country, cities, and homes.

Let’s a greet every revelation with thanks. God is on the move.First we hear the rustle. Then we go with God.

Let’s prepare to go with God. And God wants total well-being for all children!

Agree, Sleep, and Stop Crazy the Screen Addiction — and everything becomes better

Practical Parenting… So Kids Stay Grounded In A Spinning World — Keith McCurdy

Dr. Keith McCurdy gives near panacea advice to families, youth : parents must agree, kids get 10 hours of sleep, and kids must do a social media fast… and then we can deal with whatever problems remain. Amazing. Rings true.
So, whether the problem is anxiety, ADD/ADHD, rebellion, mental illness or whatever else, if we start with a healthy baseline, then the problems reduce… and can be addressed.
Parental agreement (just on how to proceed in this instance rather than on everything) , sleep, and stopping the spinning crisis world of screens… yes, that looks exactly like the key to me.
McCurdy is a pyschologist and is interviewed by the Base Camp Live podcast, which centers on classical education. Everyone will profit.

Leaving a Legacy IN our Children

These days we do hear the Proverb quoted that a good man leaves a legacy for his children and his children’s children. Prov 13:22. More important, of course, is that we leave a legacy IN our children. Sparking off a tragic story then in the news, I talk about the difficult situation that so many children and youth are in. Let’s consider what we can do.

Ha! I saw a posting this morning from a teacher who is quitting teaching. Not because the pay is better or the passion more in some other job. She says is it also NOT because children have changed. She says what has changed is parenting. SELAH.

This episode is the first in a series of 9. I also have a book on the topic, but it is not like the episdoes. It is a turn-key Bible study for a women’s group. There are even activities for the children. But if you don’t have a group, don’t worry, it will work for you too. It is all ready to go. You can get it in paperback or eformat. Get the Legacy Workbook.
