what i love about this article is how it states the pattern – it has already been set for us. the pattern was created by our very own Heavenly Father and it comes straight from the scriptures and the mouths of the Prophets.
we make mistakes, just like children do. they should be making more mistakes because they are learning how to behave. we need to keep Heavenly Father’s pattern because we know better and we should trust that He knows the way.
favorite line from the March 2013 Ensign article on Resiliency:
“Praise your children more often than you correct them.”
That is love. That is the Savior’s way.
There is no better way.
PS the big football guy in the middle of this page cracks me up.
