C4P 12: Parent Recharge

Special Treat: A visit from our daughter, Katie, mom of a 5 month old little girl. Today, we are talking about getting you reFUELED as a parent. Raising babies and children takes a lot out of you. Actually, if you are not careful (and even if you are), it can zap every single bit of your life. We have learned (sometimes the hard way) how important it is to RECHARGE.

Bible Passages: Psalm 23, John 14:27, Matthew 11:28,29

Tip for the Week – KODAK MOMENTS

The tip for this week is all about enjoying the craziest moments of childhood. You have most likely already experienced those moments where your child has done something that makes you want to laugh out loud and sob hysterically at the same time – that is after you catch your breath.

What is your reaction to the upsets and insanity that can sometimes happen?

Our suggestions:

· Expect them.

· Think now what you want your reaction to be.

· Develop a plan and memorize it.

The plan may be:

Take child out of danger, if any.

Grab the camera and snap away.

Strategize the best plan for “cleaning up”

Child first

Damaged goods second.

Teach child.

And…

Remember to laugh about it.

Share with a family member or friend. They will help you put it into perspective.

Believe it or not – days, months, or years from now this will be hilarious.
