A La Carte (11.10.11)

Here are a handful of articles you might find interesting or encouraging:

Stories are Soul Food: An article by N. D. Wilson about the value of telling your children stories. Here’s a quick excerpt: “Kids (and adults) don’t just need the truth in their heads — they need it in their bones. They need to know what courage looks like and tastes like and smells like before they ever have to show it themselves. They need to do justly, and love mercy, and walk humbly — heroes and villains can show them why.”

The Need for Clear Instructions in Parenting: A very short but helpful article that reminds us, especially with our youngest children, to give them crystal clear instructions and not expect too much of their ability to connect the dots in speech.

Grace-Based Parenting vs. Fear-Based Parenting: Which type of home is yours?

In the Danger Zone: Raising Our Children in the Age of the Screen: Al Mohler, as usual, offers some great insight into our culture–this time particularly on how “the screen” has infiltrated so many domains of our children’s lives, and our need to parent wisely as a result.

Lastly, this is just an incredible video, showing a beautiful part of God’s creation. Show your kids!
