Cleaning House, A mom’s 12 month experiment to rid her home of youth entitlement.  by Kay Wills Wyma. A family of 7, embark on an “experiment” over the course of a year, to see if kids (and parents) can really change their expectations about work and responsibility.  It is very real, without putting down any member of the family.  Her christian references and ability to admit her own failings (and those of each family member) remind us that we are all just trying to be a little better each day, and it’s okay not to be perfect all the time. It’s good to see that progress does come.  Sometimes fast and sometimes over a period of time.

 

Courageous the Movie, from the creators of “Fireproof” is a family movie that is a reminder of the importance of being a good father, and what it really takes to be the kind of father that God would want each man to be.

Forever Strong.  Forever Strong is based on a compilation of true life experiences within the Highland High School Rugby Team in Salt Lake City.  Although this film is based on the experience with the team, it is not really a sports movie. It about honesty, integrity, values and respect for the team and family.  It’s about growth and redemption, and the ultimate value of real hard work, in knowing that you are working for something bigger than yourself.  Find the review here

As protector of the home and family, you deserve all the help you can get.  I love Qustodio to help me with this job, because it sends me easy to read reports every day, helps me track of where my kids are, (or where the phone is if it goes missing) what they are doing on-line. It also opens up a line of communication between me and my kids when something does pop up.  This program will block adult content and report what internet sites are being visited, with a red accent on blocked sites, and the number of hours spent on-line.  It will also work on computers, phones, & tablet devices.
