"A good name is more desirable than great riches." Proverbs 22:1aMom's Musing:
Homecoming was last week for my daughter's high school. There were lots of extra activities and different daily themes through out the week. The purpose was to promote school spirit and student bondin. Cars we tagged with the question, "Who we be?" Then the answer, "We be D-Ridge." Individual students identified themselves with their high school, Dakota Ridge.
While working on my next project (with co-author Becky Danielson), Becky told me about a strategy one dad used with his family. He would talk to his children about "The Smith Family Values." He'd follow up with, "You are a Smith." When the children would leave the home he would call out, "Remember your name."
Parenting Tip: Promote family spirit and family values. Encourage your child to remember his/her name.
