Parenting is Not a Sometime Thing

If Vince Lombardi were to give a pep talk to a group of parents…..

Parenting is not a sometime thing it’s an all the time thing.  You don’t teach your children to do things right once in a while, you teach them to do things right all of the time.

Parenting is teaching winning habits.  Unfortunately if you don’t teach winning habits you are just hoping that your children will eventually figure things out.  If they don’t, you will have to live with that for the rest of your life,  because your children are a product of your parenting.
Running a household is similar to running any other kind of organization or business except the responsibility of parenting is much greater.  And in truth, I’ve never known a parent worth their salt who in the long run, deep down in their
heart didn’t end up appreciating the grind, the discipline.
I believe in God, and I believe in love with discipline.  But I firmly believe that any parent’s finest hour – their greatest fulfillment to all they hold dear- is that moment when they have worked their heart out in the greatest cause
known to man and are together exhausted on the living room floor victorious.
