A few things from this week's show that are worth a second share:
Have you ever wondered why kids ask Dad to pretend like he's a doggy? Sure, they get to ride on his back and listen to him bark, but Dr. Greg Smalley's observations have led him to a bigger conclusion: When we're playing with the dog, we get it's undivided attention and if Dad is doing his best doggy impression, he doesn't have a free hand to check his email or watch TV. This was an eye-opening article for me. Let's try to make fun a priority in our families! Let go of the distractions and focus on the kids!
And speaking of our 4-legged friends, if your son or daughter is not a big fan of reading, struggles with reading or just plain doesn't want to do it over the summer, why not give him or her a non-judgemental audience? A dog tutor! Too fun!
Last, but certainly not least, the phrase, "Faith Like A Child" conjures up the same symbolism for most. We should trust God like a child trusts his parents. No doubts about where the next meal is coming from or if they will be there when you need them. Kids just know their parents won't fail them. What about this thought? Kids get grace. Read it for yourself and then listen to your kids to hear God revealed through their words or tiny wisdom!
