Recently M and G have had some struggles. G has hit a very hard part of his online class. M has been learning that honesty is important to her parents. We've been seeing how these struggles effect our relationships with each other. When the we are upset, tired, guilty, we don't want to be with one another. We also drive away the Holy Ghost with actions like staying up too late, or telling lies. We can fix our relationships by saying sorry and acting honestly and helpful.
My kids have a strong "show off" streak. I hope to teach them to be a "Show up" instead of a "Show off". Put in the time, do the work, be honest in all your dealings. Do things because they are good and the right thing to do, not to impress others.
