I recently stumbled across a fantastic blogger who has some great articles on parenting, down to earth and funny.
A post that really made me sit up and take note was one titled: “Here is the Key To Unlocking your child’s heart!”
Glennon writes about a “Conversation Jar” filled with interesting questions. She puts this jar on the kitchen table and a few times a week, take turns pulling out a question during dinner. It was a well written, funny post that had a simple crafting project at the end of it involving printing, cutting strips of paper and labelling a glass jar.
Did I go ahead and try this for myself? Yes I sure did! Not only was I amazed at how simple this was to do and implement, but I am continuing to reap the benefits of these questions at our table as discussions erupt from the questions pulled out of the magical jar.
It certainly does reach right into our children’s hearts and brings out something different in each of us that we all learn from…
