...at a very critical time in our organization, we hired Ms. Penn to help us chart the course for strategic growth. She helped us set realistic goals for our program’s future development...She showed us practical ways our organization could generate additional revenue...I leave each consulting session with a written plan for what to focus on in order to continue to grow and serve the families and children in our community with excellence.

Today, we passed the BFTS inspection smoothly thanks to your help. If it wasn't for your help, we would not have passed the inspection (without a doubt)! I feel overwhelmed whenever I look at the documents you prepared for our school...Thanks for everything. - S.H.
 

For those of us that attended Tuesday's Raising Spiritual Champions Parenting seminar, wasn't it AWESOME?  For those that weren't able, we won't be able to recap Mrs. Penn's message in it's entirety! 
However, we just had to share a few highlights below as we want all of our Indelible children to grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically!
 
 

       As parents, you are our child's primary teacher and intercessor with God - *Deuteronomy 6:4-8 (below)

       You have been chosen and equipped to parent your child as part of God's plan

       Parent Priorities for Children - (1) Know God, (2) Grow in Faith, (3) Show God's Glory (Pray every night with your children even when tired)

       Our children must know and be convinced that they exist because God exists and because of his plan

       The Ultimate Goal is for children to develop self discipline - Biblical Examples:  Daniel in the Lions Den, David and Goliath, and Ester - (Faith and Wisdom at young ages)

       Parents must plan and strategize according to their child's personality and learning style - must have a balance between limits (rules) and love (nurture)


 
Basic Effective Discipline Principles

1.   Set clear and firm reasonable expectations 

2.   Be Consistent in rules and approaches

3.   Plan Ahead and Think before you speak/respond

4.   Use positive discipline techniques (i.e. You're awesome, marvelous, fascinating, etc.)

5.   Use natural and logical consequences - don't punish for normal development


 
*Deuteronomy 6:4-8 - ..."The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.  Impress them on your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down, and when you get up."
