Obey your parents

So, I am approaching a new technique with Kenzie who has been rebelling yet again, and I know that part of it is because we are not consistent with her, but I am also trying to really teach her the way of the Lord, so tonight before dinner, I told her we needed to have a little bible study. I read to her:

"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right." Ephesians 6:1. I then proceeded to explain to her that when we obey mommy and daddy it is as if we are obeying God, but when we disobey, we are disobeying God, and we don't want to disobey God do we? and she replied with "no, Mommy, we need to obey God" it was such a precious moment. I am trying to make sure that I don't loose my temper with her while I teach her with the help of God that she needs to obey me and Ryan. She will get it after a few times.

Maddie has begun stripping completely right before proceeding to go to the potty. She doesn't like doing it on the potty, so we are in full potty training mode. I have to get ryan on board though because we only just started this about a 1/2 hour ago when she decided she needed to poo on my floor! Yucky! at least it was the tile floor though :). it cleaned up nicely and then she was told to go sit on her potty and try to go potty, she tried, but i wasn't expecting her to do anymore since afterall she had relieved herself on my white tile floor! not fun... I will be trying her every 2 hours from now until she gets the jest of it. so at 8 pm just before bed, she will be back on the potty... then i will have to have ryan start the every two hour schedule tomorrow and go from there...

i am looking into getting the hooked on phonics because as tracy from work said, it can't do any harm to try it... i will definately let you all know how that goes with her this summer....

  1. Hope your new twist helps out with Kenzie.

    TMFI about the white tile! I wish you the best potty training. That is the one area the child has total control of.

    Hooked on phonics may help her speech a great deal.
