Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] Dad and I thoroughly enjoy watching movies together. One of my fondest early childhood memories was waiting in a line that was wrapped around the movie theater, anxiously waiting to see Star Wars.

Christian Home and Family Square

From Carey Green, author, blogger, speaker, coach and pastor: ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR CHILD’S SELF ESTEEM? YOU SHOULDN’T BE… AND HERE’S WHY… For years we’ve been told that our children have a fragile, but incredibly valuable sense of self-esteem, and that if we aren’t careful, we could damage it beyond repair.
