Raising Children That are Diligent — 4 Comments

  1. Really appreciate this. We, too are training our kids to work, and I need the reminder to be diligent in the training. Also, I sometimes feel like mine are the only children that take so much effort to train, so I really appreciate the honesty about their struggles.

    • Yes, it’s a long road. And it’s not the easy path. It’s easy to get discouraged unless you remind yourself that the GOAL is the end result–right now we’re in the race, not at the finish line. 🙂

  2. Jamie — This post was such a blessing to me tonight. Thank you {and congratulations to Ladybug}. It’s so easy to forget that those little people with whom we were entrusted need to learn and work at diligence and obedience, and it’s on *us* to guide them towards the light. {{Sigh}} I have work to do. XXOO

  3. Oh, how I love this! I’m nodding along as I read – this is exactly what we are striving for as parents. while we don’t have the exciting outdoor chores that y’all have, the girls are learning chores that we deem are appropriate and also to obey quickly when asked. {although that one is a work in progress!!}
