We can not control children. We can control our adult actions.

For those that missed the last parent meeting, here is your crash course. 

Well, you missed a skit by Katy Love and Monica Parran. There is no blog that can capture the magic of that. 

Eve also shared some very important parent preparation skills from trusted teachers, Marin Schmidt and Dr. Jane Nelson. 

Maren Schmidt, is a Montessorian who offers sound teaching and parenting advice. She urges adults to Think Before You Talk- a newsletter piece outlined below.   

Dr. Jane Nelsen writes on positive discipline. She poignantly asks, "Do you expect your children to control their behavior when you don't control your own?" In Control Your BehaviorNelsen offers 3 parenting tools to help us feel controlled in challenging situations.
