A Great Reminder


Happy New Year!  I pray you had a wonderful holiday season.  Our travels brought us to Little Rock, AR where we encountered a white Christmas.  What a beautiful sight!  I don’t think my boys have ever seen so much snow or played so hard!

We had our first day back to school on Friday and I was reminded again how important it is to repeat certain things to your children.

So one of my sons, who I will not name :0, walked right into his classroom, right past the teacher who said “Hello”, and just remained silent.  I was not pleased, but embarrassed!

I was reminded that I have to tell them often to be respectful to their elders.  I told my boys after school that their Dad and I expected them to always greet their teacher in the morning.

“Hello Ms. Jenkins, was a great way to start.  (using their name is so important)

I went on the explain to them that their teacher deserves a lot of respect and encouragement and a way to do that is to acknowledge them by looking into their eyes, smiling  and saying hello.

Sounds so simple, but so important.

Have a blessed day.
