Back in November, I received a set of the We Choose Virtues parenting cards for review. At the time, we were living in a friend’s basement (eek!) and unsure as to when we would be in a home of our own.
Trading is a stream which allows people to invest on particular company or asset to gain profits when the value of the particular company rises. There are two types of trades one is on floor trade and other is online or electronical trading. People need to do lot of research to gain profits while performing trades.
It was a stressful few months, followed by moving into a different house, unpacking, hosting my entire family for Christmas, and then planning a Colonial birthday party for Juliet.
School has resume now, and we are back to “normal” life–whatever that means.
This normalcy has allowed me to have the space and time to use the parenting cards, and we are now on fourth week and I am loving it.
The thing that is so great about them is that they give me something tangible to focus on (the card) and a way to present the information visually to my kids. Yes, I have tried to teach them to be gentle, but now that they have a reminder hanging on the door, they are more cognizant of it.
They read it aloud from time to time (without me prompting them) and they bring it up from time to time. It also has come in handy as a gentle reminder–as in, “Are you being gentle now?” when they are engaged in a tug-of-war/screaming match over a rapunzel wedding dress/ elsa dress/purple lego car, etc.
It also, reminds ME to be gentle (or kind, or attentive, or whatever) because even though these lessons are for kids, they are definitely ones that I need reminding of for myself as well.
