Out of the mouth of 5 year olds

#2: "Being a 5-year-old is hard work I think"

me: "yes"

#2: "Being a 5-year-old is harder than being a 4-year-old"

This comes after all day of no DS playing since he's having such a hard time reacting to life like a 5-year-old and this mama is quick to blame the stupid machine that seems to be soaking up all his brains, self-control and patience!

Being 5 is hard!

Being a mom is hard too. Good job. Finding the root cause of behavior through observation and communication seems to be the key to altering it in even young kids. Have you read, "Shepherding A Child's Heart" ? You would love it.

Thanks for the book tip...I'll check it out next week during our library trip. I've really started to notice ways I need to work on keepping my kids' hearts especially the older ones, I probably would really like that book.

As the person responsible for the DS, sucks to be you. Love DAD
