Stone Soup for Five: Six questions to completely change the school year

Six questions to completely change the school year




Want to completely change your school year this year?

Do you want to make this the best year ever where you can work on relationship and character and integrity?

Work through each of the following questions thoughtfully...
but you have only 30 seconds on each.
(just kidding... kinda)

The main thing is, don't just read through these, think "Oh, those are great, I need to do them!" then click away and forget.

These six questions will change your school year and your relationship.

Take 2 minutes out of your day for each child and work through these.
They will change everything.

Ready?

What, specifically, does your first born child need from you right now, at this stage in his/her life?
(go with your gut answer.  Think for a second or two, then go with your gut.  Write it down.)

What external pressures is your child currently dealing with?

What areas does your child need encouragement?

What issues will he/she deal with soon?

What positive behavior can I praise him/her for?

How can I get more involved in his/her world?
(ideas: put down your phone, get off the computer, talk and ask [hint: questions that require more than a yes or no are pretty much the best way to get inside your child's head] about their interests--what do you like about that video game?  What is the goal of the game?  What is your favorite singer's best song? Why?)

There is an AMAZING blog post about more questions for your kids here at the Bravewriter blog.

Now, do this same thing for each of your children.

If you're brave, do it for your husband too.

Be sure to write down your answers.  Write them multiple times.  Keep them where you will see them in the morning, during the afternoon, at night.

Pray through them.

Live them.

Act on them.

It will completely change your school year.
