    Happy Monday! Little story....

    Should things get crazy for you this week; hopefully this will come to mind



    The First Parent

    by Bill Cosby

    Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to his kids.

    After creating Heaven and Earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing He said to them was: "Don't."

    "Don't what?", Adam replied.

    "Don't eat the forbidden fruit."

    "Forbidden fruit? Really? Where is it?"

    "It's over there," said God, wondering why He hadn't stopped after making the elephants.

    A few minutes later God saw the kids having an apple break and He was angry.

    "Didn't I tell you not to eat that fruit?" the First Parent asked.

    "Uh huh," Adam replied.

    "Then why did you?"

    "I dunno," Adam answered.

    God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.

    Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed. But there is reassurance in this story.

    If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give them wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself.

    If God had trouble handling children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?
    Children are great imitators.
    So give them something great to imitate.

    LOL ... and goes that is too short apparently I will add a
    Children construct their own intelligence. The adult must provide activities and context, but most of all must be able to listen. Children need proof that adults believe in them. Their three great desires are to be listened to, to understand, and to demonstrate that they are exactly what we expect."
