Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Talking with Toby

Toby, two years old,  sat confined in his high chair during school, working on wooden puzzles.

Toby: I want a new puzzle from the play room!

Mom: Toby, don't talk to me in such a demanding way. I'm not doing anything for you when you talk that way.

Toby: I'm so frustrated!

This is a precious story, Amy! It reminds me of the time my 3 or 4 year old had been sent to his room because, in anger, he had thrown or broken something. As dh and I approached his room to discipline him, we could hear him weeping in his bed, and saying, "Why?! Why oh why did I do it?!"

Oh, our struggle with sin begins so early! I loved your post the other day about Owen's writings about mortification of sin. Sometimes I struggle with being tough with my kids because I know how difficult it is to overcome sin. Why, oh, why, indeed!
