Parenting with Power Scripture of the week: “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.” Colossians 3:20

Be Firm Without Being Harsh Some parents believe that the only way to be firm is to be harsh. Firmness says that a boundary is secure and won’t be crossed without a consequence. Harshness uses angry words and increased volume to make children believe that parents mean what they say. Some parents have assumed that firmness and harshness must go together. How do you make the change? Two things will help you remove harshness from your interaction with your children: Dialogue less and show less emotion. In an attempt to build relationship, some parents spend too much time dialoguing about the instructions they have just given. They try to defend their words, persuade their children to do what they’re told, or logically explain the value of obeying. This is often counterproductive. Parents then resort to anger to end the discussion, complicating matters further. “I thought talking and showing emotion are signs of a healthy family, leading to closeness in family life”, you might say. This is true when they are used in the right way. Unfortunately, when added to the instruction process, these two ingredients confuse children and don’t give them the clear boundaries they need. These are two good things, just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Firmness requires action, not anger. Having a toolbox of consequences is important to help move children along in life. It’s not optional. Some parents use anger as their consequence. These parents need more tools that will help their children make lasting changes. Strategy for the week: If you find yourself being harsh, take time to re-evaluate your response. More action, less yelling can go a long way to bring about significant change. ~ In His service, Klaus Knobloch and Rosemary Whincop

Secondary Memories My mum is nearly 93 years old. What strikes me about her, is that she does not remember the naughty or worrying things that we did as children. What she remembers now is the good times. According to my mum, my brother, sister and I were perfect. We know that we were not, but how lovely that she thinks of us in that way. I found this story by Bob Perks that speaks of this very idea.

Never Forget That I Love You! At that very moment I thought, “I will never forget this!” But I did. There was a song back in the 70s that I can remember performing... “Please remember what I told you to forget.” The original was by the Four Tops. But the one that I loved to sing was a true reflection of the 70s recorded by Tavares. When the title for this message came to me, I wondered where God wanted me to go with it. A thousand images of holding hands, saying goodbye, hello and yes even moments of absolute joy rushed into my mind. Each of them, at the moment they occurred, were so very important I thought for sure that, “I will never forget this.” But I did. When my mother died I remember looking up at the clock on the wall wanting to burn the memory of the exact minute in time that she stopped breathing. I can’t remember it now. I do know that she died, but I remember more about how she lived. When my divorce was finalized, I believed that I would never forget the exact date. The form arrived in the mail. I shook when I opened it. There was a day and time stamped on it. “I will never forget this.” But I did. I believed, too, that I would always remember every single date of each chemo treatment my son Keith had. There were so many it is all a blur now. His cure helped me to forget. With tear soaked clothing and blood stained hands, I knew I would never forget the exact time that I came upon a car accident. Seeing the young man pinned in the back on the floor of his car frightened me so that I thought I’d be traumatized forever. I remember running to my car to get a copy of my New Testament, and returning, prayed over him. As they loaded him in the ambulance I drew a cross on the side of the rain soaked van. “I will never forget this day.”

Today, I can’t for the life of me remember what day that was. I see now what it is that God wants me to tell you with this message. It would be easy to write this off as part of the aging process. I am 60 and yes, I do forget things. But that’s not it. God wants you to know that life is filled to capacity with “unforgettable moments.” So many, in fact, that although your mind has the ability to store them all, you will not remember every detail of every moment. That’s why whatever pain or tragedy you may be facing today, at this very moment, there will be days ahead that will smooth the edges, round out the cutting remarks, the piercing tone of an argument or the loss of your job, home or income. There are days ahead when the sun will shine reflecting off the fresh fallen snow or the quiet flow of a spring fed pond and you will stand peacefully by and God will gently wash away the pain but not the memory of it ever happening. There are moments ahead when the tiniest thing will fill your mind with joy, buffering, not totally replacing, the images of this day, with calm and tranquility. You will know the soft caress of a friend or loved one. The warm, heartfelt words spoken by a stranger, who seeing your anguish, offers a smile, a touch, as he says, “I’ll say a prayer for you.” Yes, life is life, so there may also be more painful events, unimaginable at this moment, which will make today pale in comparison. You will say, “I will never forget this.” But life is like the ocean. Some waves will knock you down, some will carry you safely back to shore. Others will lift you high enough to see that you are not alone. There are more boats on the horizon, more people on the same journey. I am sorry for the pain you think you will never forget. I am sorry for the loss you may be facing. I am sorry for the fear that is consuming you right now. Life is exciting. The highs replace the lows and joy washes away the fear. When your days are filled with love, warmth and joy, my many prayers will be answered. God wanted me to write this for you today and tell you, “Never forget that I love you!” “I wish you enough!” ~ Bob Perks ~ Happy parenting. And so it is. ~ Rhonda Bevan, Head of Secondary Thursday, February 17, 2011 - Page 3
