Welcome to Daily Lessons for Kids

When my youngest child turned 4 and my oldest was 9, I felt a deep shift in our family. I have heard the time when children are between the ages of 4-12 years old referred to as the golden age of parenting, and I would have to agree. My kids are old enough to get dressed by themselves, but young enough to still think I know everything! They are young enough to still fit snuggly in my lap, and yet old enough to have meaningful conversations while there. I want to make good use of this fleeting time by teaching them valuable skills, thoughts, and patterns of behavior that will benefit them – and those around them – for the rest of their lives.

I have read extensively over the years, and from each book that enlightened me, I pulled out quotes and thoughts. I have put these ideas into a series of bite-sized lessons for kids. These are designed to be 3-minute daily lessons that can be read over breakfast or dinner or as a nightly ritual before bed. They will train kids’ brains (and yours) to think about life’s experiences in productive, positive and powerful ways. They will provide you with a shared vocabulary for important and life-changing family discussions. 

I believe if our children can internalize these ideas about human nature and have these thoughts as part of their inner voice, they will be better equipped to handle the world.
