"Hi, Holly! It sounds like your boyfriend's little boy is not getting any disipline and it is NOT your place to do it. If your boyfriend isn't willing to change his parenting ways, I very highly suggest you break it off with your boyfriend…"
"Hi Single Strict Mom! My husband and I raised 5, the first 4 boys. We did spank until they reached the age of 10 or 11--we felt they were too old at that point for physical punishment. We then tried to fit the time with the crime when…"
"I wouldn't. Besides the obedience factor in 2 Corinthians 6:14 "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers." It creates a myriad of problems in your marriage. We make a lot of lifestyle choices based on values and, hopefully, Biblical…"
"The best thing? Talk to other moms. I just had a long conversation with a niece who has struggled--she had more tears than the baby--but she persevered. It's definitely worth it. She was having problems with let down. She had to work at…"

"I am reading Seeking the Face of God by Gary Thomas. On the back cover: "Rediscover a spiritual authenticity that stirs your spirt, and experience anew the life of God in the soul of man." Who wouldn't want to read that??"
Sandy thanks for your advice. It makes a lot of sence. You are right I should take it day by day. I do have a good relationship with the teachers. I volunteer a couple a times a week. His SSN teacher will give my son extra work during breaks so he stays on schedule. I quess it is hard for others to know what my son is capable of. He has bad days and good days. I guess I just have to work hard on a good day and extra hard on a bad day. The good thing is my son loves to do homework , read books or any kind of work. We just have a lot of fun. I wish my daughter put that much effort in her schoolwork. Thanks Sandy for your advice.
Sandy, if you'll message me again with your address, I'll send it to the publicist for Dannah. She said she was sorry and that she didn't get my original e-mail. Hopefully this will straighten it out! : )
It is not easy but it is nice to know that somebody understands.
My son is only 6 but we believe in his potential. I believe that he to one day will have a chance to go to college but it seems to be hard to convince some of his teachers of his potential. I am so happy your son is in college. I would love to know how you convinced the people that did not believed in his potential that any child should have a chance to proof them wrong.
You are the winner of the autographed copy of Dannah Gresh's book for tween girls. Dannah's publicist will send it direct to you. Also, I received the copy of 10 Best Decisions from the publister yesterday and I'll put it in the mail today. : )
