A Mother is a Mailman

A mom is a mail person.

Every important piece of information that your child receives should come from you. 

Keep an open atmosphere in your home so that your children are able to ask you anything at all. 

In Carol's home, she made it very clear that there was no such thing as a "stupid" question. 

Every question that came from the heart of one of her children was valuable and therefore worthy of the wisest answer.

Build an atmosphere in your home where there is a constant flow of information between the generations. 

Include grandparents, neighbors, missionaries, teachers and others into the family conversation who can contribute to your children's worldview.

A mom is a mailperson and every significant piece of knowledge and data should be delivered from your mouth and heart into the repository of your child's life. 

Your children should learn from you;

How to budget their money…

What sex is all about…

Why you don't watch certain programs…
and why we are kind to all types of people.

Neither rain nor sleet nor snow keeps the mail person from doing his or her job and so it is with you and the children who share your address. 

Don't allow adolescence, the teachable 2's, lack of income, the absence of an education or being a single mom prevent you from being open with your kids. 

As mothers, we must turn every situation that we encounter into a teaching opportunity.

Ask your children probing questions to get the conversations started …

Questions like;

"What do you think about how that girl is dressed on TV?"

"Is Thomas the Train being kind?  Who has been kind to you?"

"Do you think that is necessary to use profanity?  Why do people use profanity?  Let's see if the Bible says anything about swearing or cursing."

Every piece of information that you deliver to your child's heart and mind should come as a special delivery from you!

Ephesians 4:29 - "Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment so that it may give grace to those who hear."

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
