Yes, in our home, our kids learned very quickly that one of my favorite reminders is, 'Every action has a consequence." And those can be both positive and negative!

Yes, it can feel scary when your child is a late reader, or just continues to resist reading when you just know it's such an important part of their learning!

7,650 days - that's the number of days you have your child before they turn 18 and are considered a legal adult...whether they are ready for it or not.

Instead of "flipping the switch" to adulthood, look at it more as the turning of a dial - that will continue to go up a notch with every life lesson and experience we have.
