Sheltering Children - Part 2: Parental Responsibility for Influences

What kinds of dangers threaten our children? It is quite acceptable, in our society, for a parent to protect children from physical dangers. But are there spiritual hazards that are more threatening than mere bodily harm? Jesus said (Matt. 10:28), "And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

 

As Christians we recognize that spiritual and emotional threats are more significant than mere physical perils.

Managing the Meltdown: Kids and Temper Tantrums

Managing the Meltdown: Kids and Temper Tantrums | Daddytude | Scoop.it

Kids have meltdowns and temper tantrums for two reasons.

 

The first reason is that they have never learned how to manage or have run out of the tools it takes to manage their feelings in a new situation or event.

 

The second reason they have tantrums is because it’s been successful for them in the past. They’ve seen that when they have a tantrum, they get what they want pretty quickly.

John Holt and the Origins of Contemporary Homeschooling

John Holt and the Origins of Contemporary Homeschooling | Daddytude | Scoop.it

John Holt was a fifth grade teacher who worked in private schools. In 1964, his book How Children Fail created an uproar with his observations that forcing children to learn makes them unnaturally self-conscious about learning and stifles children's initiative and creativity by making them focus on how to please the teachers and the schools with the answers they will reward best, a situation that creates a fake type of learning. To paraphrase Holt, the only difference between a good student and a bad student is that the good student is careful not to forget what he studied until after the test is taken. His subsequent book, How Children Learn (1967), also became widely known. The two are still in print and together they have sold over a million and a half copies and have been translated into over 14 languages
