i highly recommend this!

i signed up for these daily emails (and let me tell you, that's a serious decision for someone with 300 emails in there to answer!) and i'm SO glad i did. i'm not really one for daily inspirational anything. don't like those books, calendars, etc. i'm pretty much a "suck it up" type who wants the simple scientific explanation to digest and i'll feel good about things later.
anyway, i LOVE these and i'm so glad i get them. i'm keeping them and will compile them for future reference too. they're very short and sweet with some plain talk about raising RADicals with love and peace (and i so need that peace). it is encouraging and i like getting one each day. i'm not sure how many there are yet. but i love that they're very common sense and great reminders about simple concepts that seem very complex when you look at RAD as a whole.

Heather's Daily Parenting Reflection

some of my favorites:
- Change the course of your parenting today and change the course of your family history for generations to come.
- Controlling actions only teach controlling lessons.
- In order to 'correct' your child's behavior, you must work to 'correct' your child's emotional state, helping and guiding him to shift from a state of fear to a state of love.
- The greatest gift you can give to your children is you. Spend time with them, help them through their struggles, and love them through their behaviors.
