Losing a Parent While Being a Young Parent

Christian. Son. Brother. Cousin. Friend. Uncle. Parent. All of these are roles that I play before even getting into the profession. Each of these roles come with their own individual responsibilities and their own individual challenges. Each of these roles and relationships need to be nurtured often times on a daily basis. As you get older, it becomes even more important to be intentional about fostering the relationships that you have with your loved ones. In 2016 God showed me that in a very intense and powerful way.

What Did You Do In School Today?

Everyday, parents pick up their children from school and ask the age-old question, “What did you do at school today?” In so many of these trips home from school, the age-old answer is still, “I played.” In my almost 24 years teaching Preschool at Christ the King Lutheran School, I have learned that parents are truly interested in their child’s education and school experiences.

My Child Won't Do His Homework -- Help!

Q. My middle school son won’t do his homework. He tells me it’s complete, and I find out later it wasn’t. I try to keep up with it on the teachers’ websites, but he always tells me he finished it in class. Later, I find out he just didn’t do it. What can I do to make him do his homework?

Making Homework Fun

Homework doesn't always have to be a "chore". Make homework fun and reward your child when they are finished! All of these ideas can be modified to your child's specific age.
