Perhaps you to have some kids who struggle with anger? Here is a verse that helps. Once your child knows it by heart… You will only have to say the first part and they can finish it!

If we write God’s word on children’s heart He will scrub it and clean it for you.

God does the hard part!!!

 

Below is a version without my Aunti Lolo face!

One of my personal missions in life as a Parent is to ask God how to Glue Kids to Him so that they have a better chance of sticking and to share with others what I learn along the way as a Parent Coach. Parenting is much easier when God is in our children and teens’ hearts and He can teach them as He has promised so they can live a more peaceful life.

Sticking of course means staying connected to Him in their lives to fulfill the role He created for them and have a more successful life

Kid Safe YouTube App News from Enough is Enough

Hello hello hello parents and caretakers!!!

I know it has been a long while since I last posted since I went back to graduate school. Lots of late nights studying after the minis go to bed. Anyway, I just opened up my inbox and email from Enough is Enough. I count on Donna Rice Hughes and her organization to keep me informed on the latest in internet safety for families. The have extensive internet safety data at  internetsafety101.org

Their latest is that we have good news from Google. We parents and caretakers now have a safer option for our children who enjoy the rich free video content available on YouTube. As a homeschooler, I love to show my kids educational videos on the topics that come up. I have been often frustrated by the slimy content that has popped up at the same time.

Have you? Yuck!

Well now there is an option for us caregivers available for free on Google Play or the App Store to filter what their children are exposed to and better yet, set parenting controls.

Enough is enough shared a few tips from Google on their YouTube new parental controls from the Google Blog… go there for details:

Family-focused content

… Now, parents can rest a little easier knowing that videos in the YouTube Kids app are narrowed down to content appropriate for kids, You can browse channels and playlists in four categories: Shows, Music, Learning and Explore.”

“Parental controls

We realize every family is different, so we’ve built options into the app that help you control the experience for your kids:

 

  • Timer: Let the app be the bad guy with a built-in timer that lets you limit kids’ screen time. The app alerts your child when the session is over, so you don’t have to. (You’re welcome ;-))
  • Sound settings:  Sometimes you need a little peace and quiet! You have an option to turn off background music and sound effects, so your kids can keep watching while you catch a breather.
  • Search settings:  If you’d rather limit your children to just the pre-selected videos available on the home screen, you can turn off search.
  • Product feedback: Our goal is to improve YouTube Kids all the time, so we’ve included for you to give us your feedback.

I am not sure how you feel about YouTube for your children. I know a lot of parents who do not trust the website. Now, they have a new opportunity to reevaluate YouTube. I for one am grateful…

So we can look up more cool educational facts.

Like “How does an astronaut eat and go potty mom?”

 ” Be inspired, motivated and encouraged to discover how build resiliency and iron focus in order to leverage adversity to reach your potential”

-The Iron Jen

 

Often, I find many people have things in their heart they want to accomplish, yet they are discouraged and afraid. Some feel too tired to try since they have many obstacles to overcome.

A starting place for them to change is by renewing their minds and gain courage to go forward even when they may feel like quitting or giving up on their family, hopes and dreams.

I always encourage them to pray and read their Bible if they are people of faith.

The Word of God is stuffed with helpful verses that give courage and strength :

“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)

After those bases are covered…. I cannot say enough about The Iron Jen Show podcast. Iron Jen’s honesty and transparency keep me hooked on the show.

I listen to it regularly from the podcast app on my iPhone. You can listen on Android and on Blog Talk Radio on your computer. You can subscribe to automatically receive new episodes.

The background story is a family that has worked hard to climb out of massive debt, compete in triathlons, manage their busy lives with four children including one son who unfortunately has serious health issues for God to heal.

The podcast is designed for people from all walks of life who need encouragement and support. Iron Jen tackles life’s tough issues with her guests who help listeners overcome everything from writing a book,  starting or expanding a business, to climbing out of depression or helping a child conquer substance abuse.
