~*Day 10 of Bless Your Child*~

Day 10
Embrace Mistakes



The above canvas is our inspiration for our series "Bless Your Child Everyday".  

Yesterday, we covered trusting our children to make their own choices.  Teaching our children to embrace their mistakes is the next logical step in learning what the consequences are of the choices they do make.  

First, we have to embrace our own mistakes.  We have to own up to them in the hearing of our children, acknowledging that we should have made a different choice.  They will model what they see us do.  

Mistakes teach us.  They help us to grow as people.  We gain wisdom and understanding.  It is very humbling to embrace our mistakes, especially in front of our children; yet the reward of seeing them embrace their own mistakes is precious, indeed!  

Proverbs 4:1
 Get wisdom at any cost.
Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction;
    pay attention and gain understanding.
