crazy, weird, UNIQUE!


Rules without relationship leads to rebellion. -Josh McDowell (quoted by Dr. Kevin Leman –Have a New Kid by Friday)

I’ve been catching up with some lessons from HAVE A NEW KID BY FRIDAY By Dr. Kevin Leman.  This quote here was something that really got me to thinking about discipline in general.  He’s talking about how we treat our children and how we can really handle a situation instead of instantly reacting.  This quote, though, really reminded me of a video we watched before school started this year during our professional development days.  It was about relationships with our students.  It was a video by Rita Pierson where she says “Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like.” ’

This quote above really summed it up for me.  Made me think even more about the fact that GOOD relationships are important in dealing with students and with my own babes.

If a student (or your own child!) knows you care about them (relationship) and want them in your class (acceptance), rules (discipline) are so much easier to administer.


What do you think about this quote?
