Privately Parent, Publicly Praise

"Mock your children as they struggle and they will learn to never share their struggles with you." (Shared from this great article, worth the read!:

GREAT article "privately parent and publicly praise" your children. My Mission President, gave some great marriage advice years before I got married - to paraphrase him -, 'do not talk badly about your spouse in front of others', there is a time and a place to share concerns or problems with a few select TRUSTED friends/family, but to focus on negative behavior and feelings in your children or your spouse only serves to give a breeding ground for the feelings to grow in your heart. I'm a big believer in "As a man thinketh so is he", and positive thoughts lead to positive feelings, and positive feelings lead to positive behavior. In my humble opinion;)


  1. I certainly love positive thoughts and feelings. Thanks for sharing this one; it was a good one.

  2. Always wonderful printables; thanks for sharing them.
    Blessings to you!


Hope you have a brilliant day!!
