Family Friday: Are you Listening?

5 Jun

We’ve sort of had a family fallout this week.  Nothing major going on; it’s just been a stressful week in our house and none of us deal really well with stress.  I really want to endeavor to teach my children to handle things better than I do, in all situations, really.  My husband and I have done some thinking about this lately and we’ve identified some ways we can improve on communicating as a family so that maybe we can model better strategies for our children. We really tried to target some specific behaviors that we want to change (or implement) to tweak our attitudes, for the sake of our own emotional well-being and for the sake of modeling them for our kids.

On a different but related note, my friend posted this link on Facebook today, and it’s a great example of one of the things we want to model at home.  What about you?  Do you have any moments of introspection or attitude adjustments you can share?

Proverbs 12:15: The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man listens to advice.
