We’ve all been there. You are in the grocery store, on the very last aisle and everything seems to fall apart with your child. They are tired, hungry, bored, you name it and they just want out of there. A tantrum ensues. You are left feeling frustrated, embarrassed, and exhausted when it is all said and done.
That is just one small example of how difficult parenting can be. There are many different examples that go right on up to the teen years. I have found myself kicking around the idea for a while of bringing together parents in order to support one another and offering real, practical, solid advice for Raising a Well-Mannered Child. I believe that it starts young and that what you put forth when they are little will shine through as they grow older. It is definitely a dance of sorts and it takes patience, prayer, and practice.
I will be the first one to tell you that I am far from having this figured out. Every child is different and NO ONE is perfect. But, I do think that there are some practical ways we can make sure we are laying a good foundation for our children’s future behaviors.
I invite you to join me on this adventure! I will have guest posts from women whom I know and love and personally believe have got a great handle on this in their own families lives. This is where you come in. I would love it if you all would participate and blog about the ways you are trying to raise a Well-Mannered Child. Maybe they are just some quick tips or even long term advice. I have partnered up with several different companies whom I personally believe in and use for tools when it comes to character education and will be offering several really useful giveaways. If you leave your direct link below to your blog post as well as grab the “RAWMC” button for your blog, you will receive an extra 10 entries on all of the giveaways! Just make sure to let your readers know that you are blogging about this as a part of the Raising a Well-Mannered Child Series and link back to Go Graham Go. I really want to get as many people involved as possible. The more help we can give each other the better! Once you have left your link feel free to leave 10 extra entries on the giveaways by using “RAWMC” in your comments. The series starts up March 1st!
