Teach Your Children Well

Here’s what I’ve learned as a host to some kind of virus that loosens its grip but won’t let go:

  1. We teach our children to share.  “Now you share that pizza with your little brother.”   What we don’t say is “and make sure that’s all you share, sneezy McGee”.
  2. We teach our children to pass on to their parents everything about their day at school.  “Then, Dakota and the other Dakota both threw up.  It was awesome.  And warm!”
  3. We teach our children, again, to share.  And so they do, without discretion.  “Oh Daddy, thanks for catching my sneeze with your face.  I’m glad we could share.”

And here we are.  I’m on my second bottle of NyQuil.


About radamdavidson

When I'm not blogging, I'm hanging out with my family, pastoring a church, or listening to vinyl. I think and write about Jesus, music, communication, organizational leadership, family whatnot, and cultural artifacts from the 1980's -- mostly vintage boomboxes. You can read my blog at www.radamdavidson.com, watch [RadCast], a daily 3 minute video devotional, or find me on socials (@radamdavidson). I also help Pastors in their preaching and public speaking (www.CoachMyPreaching.com).
