Some ways we think that cause us distress
Are we raising our sons to respect women?
A lot fo the problems in the world would disappear if we would talk TO each other, rather than ABOUT each other.
- Quote from the Web.
Don't assume. Ask that person who offended you what they really meant to communicate before you assume the worst. Tell them how it made you feel, but do it calmly and with respect.
Share your weakness e.g. It really upsets me when people say/do xyz. Then share what you need e.g. it would really help me if you would say/do abc instead.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Make all the people who make you feel special, feel special. Extend extra patience to the ones who don't.
Do you strive to be the best parent you can be, but sometimes feel a little lost in how to strike the balance between raising your child to be an adult who is happy and secure, but also successful and God-fearing? The good news is that you don’t need to be perfect, but you do need to be “good enough”. Good-Enough Parenting is a Movie Therapy based parenting programme developed by John & Karen Louis that aims to show us how to identify and meet the core needs of our children while avoiding passing down your own dysfunctional traits, so that you can have a head start at being a “good enough parent”.
There will be classes held every Wednesday, starting February 13, 2013 at 7 pm, at the Bahamas International Church of Christ building on Thompson Boulevard for 5 weeks.
$50 will enroll you in the class and give you a copy of the Good Enough Parenting Book and a T-shirt.
Come and learn to be a Good Enough Parent. Join us on Wednesday!

All the best for the new year! Any New Year's resolutions?
Think of one small achievable thing, that if you stuck to it, would make a big difference in your life. Try and do that one thing consistently for January. If you succeed at that, you have created a new healthy amazing habit that has changed your life for the better. Next select and try to stick to one more small important thing for February.
Trying to change a lot of things at the same time is not usually successful. A long list of New Year's resolutions may make you feel overwhelmed and you are less likely to stick to them.
What ONE thing do you want to change for January?
If you WANT a great husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend, BE a great wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend! Become what you are looking for and you are more likely to find it.
I realize that a lot of the things we have talked about, you have probably heard them before, and I have said them before, but are you putting them into practice? They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. If you try to change too many things at once, you may not be successful. So pick one habit, just one thing that you think you can do. Can you eat more vegetables? Can you eat a fruit every day? Can you drink a glass of water before each meal? Can you walk on the spot for 15 minutes while you are watching the news? Just pick one thing and try to stick with it for 21 days. When you have got that one down, pick another thing and see if you can nail that for 21 days. You will be surprised at what you can accomplish. Slow and steady wins the race!
Love yourself, take care of your health!
