Sunday Visit: My New Toolbox

My friend at Life with Mamita has been writing a series of posts that you don’t want to miss.  Titled “My New Toolbox,” she is sharing the new tools they are using in parenting their little girl from “hard places.”  I love this:

It feels like I traded in my garage full of power tools for that “first apartment” toolbox. You know the one – it contains a hammer, screwdrivers, a tape measure and some picture-hanging nails. Just the basics, but everything you really need.

Check out  these three posts and see what you can add to your own Toolbox.

Have a wonderful Sunday; I think I need a serious dose of church!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Thank you for posting this. I needed to read this today, this morning. And I need to revamp my toolbox, for at home and for my 19 kindergarten children waiting for me each morning! Thank you!

    Great tool box posts! I loved the one of things that don't work. As I read through the list I thought–sheesh, are these every supposed to work? I do all of them with bio children and maybe they kinda work and they sure seem easier for me because I can keep being me, doing my dishes and lob those commands, threats and then finally come in for a quick swat and then back to work. But my word, they don't seem to really work in the long run. Becoming a foster parent has been a gift. And one of the biggest gifts is to my heart, my bio children AND our foster kids. So like God to redeem everyone together, right?! I am happy to be learning a new way. Thanks for the post and the link. Now, I might need to glue these to my kitchen counter so I can remember the goal when I am tempted to lob commands and threats instead of meeting my kiddos and helping them. Great stuff to read on a Monday morning!
