Children are unique, but they also fall into some fairly predictable categories.One child is a reliable, conscientious, perfectionistic, opinionated, list-maker who likes things done well. Another child is more rough and tumble, but loyal and hangs tough through thick and thin. Yet another child is outgoing, relational, charming, and can persuade others to listen to their opinions – a good negotiator.On our broadcast today, Dr. Kevin Leman says you can almost predict according to birth order which child will fit those descriptions.The post How Birth Order Affects Your Parenting appeared first on Jim Daly.

Gary Morland believes families are like a river – good and bad choices alike flow downstream across generations. Gary's family of origin was an unhappy one. There was a lot of arguing and disharmony. His dad was an alcoholic. So was his grandfather, who left the family as a result of his addiction. Gary learned to accept dysfunction as normal and unchangeable. The influence of his past sent him on a 15-year journey down what he calls the “Rocky Rapids of Addiction.”When Gary turned 21, his dad took him drinking, and for the next 15 years, three quarts of beer a day became his habit.The post God's Grace for Those Trapped in Addiction appeared first on Jim Daly.
By: Danny HuertaFriday's release of the second season of 13 Reasons Why, the popular teen television drama, is bound to generate enormous interest – and controversy.According to a Northwestern University study, the show's highly-rated first season on Netflix significantly increased conversations among teens on difficult topics, but not necessarily in positive or healthy ways.The same study also revealed that almost 80% of teens and young adults who watched the show felt it helped them understand the ripple effect of their behaviors, but it didn't necessarily inspire them to reach out and repair relationships with those they hurt.The post Guest Post: Your Teen Wants to Watch “13 Reasons Why”?

But they also meant eating watermelon (that we grew ourselves) and homemade (hand-churned!) ice cream. The grown-ups drank iced […]The post #SummerWOW with Your Family appeared first on Hip Homeschool Moms.
