With 3 daughters who play sports AND hold powerlifting records, one question I get a lot is, "At what age can my daughter start lifting weights."

My answer is in this new blog post ...

I'm absolutely loving the respiratory blend of #essentialoils right now. We have that and Douglas fir in our diffuser this evening. Lovely :)))

Still about the trophies?

Look, here's the truth...

Whether your kid gets a trophy for participation or not does not determine their attitude toward hard work or earning their way.

YOUR attitude toward those things is a far bigger influence than any piece of wood and plastic.

Stop trying to teach with your mouth. What are your kids learning from your actions and choices in life and with them?

Action: parent takes away something that represented a fun experience in child's life

Child thinks: it's important to have good work ethic

Those things don't seem related! Because they're not. Do you really think kids will draw that parallel from that action to that thought/message?

Here's what's more likely...

Action: parent takes away something that represented a fun experience in child's life

Child thinks: I guess it's not okay for me to have cool stuff OR mom/dad doesn't think I'm good enough to deserve that OR it's okay for someone to take away something from me if they don't think I should have it OR "one day" I'll deserve something cool like that OR why can't we just enjoy this moment together

So often when we're trying to "teach them a lesson" the lesson learned is NOT AT ALL what we intended as parents.

If you keep looking at things from YOUR point of view you'll never understand how what you do affects your child or how it makes them feel or what lasting impression you're really leaving with them. It's almost never the one you really wanted them to "get."

You would've never guessed this guy went to bed on Friday with a 103 degree temp. Happy to see him feeling so much better today :)
