My Favorite Heathens

Our children are naturally sinful.

They don't need to be taught to bite.

They naturally claim, "MINE!" as soon as they're able.

"NO" is a favorite word soon after their second birthday.

They are selfish, self-serving, and manipulative.

It is my job as a parent to teach them right from wrong.

To teach honesty vs lies,

Integrity vs sneakiness,

Service vs selfishness.

We as humans are constantly fighting against our selfish human nature.  We (I) are naive to think that our children are naturally good and free from temptation.  They need our guidance, our love, and most importantly...our discipline.

Hi, my name is Shannon and my children are heathens.  I vow to do my best to recognize where they truly are and to discipline them in order to prepare them for a happy, healthy and productive adulthood.

Sounds like a homeschooling day at our house.
