"I'm tired of talking!" Have you heard yourself say this before? I know I have, yet no matter how tired I get, I must continue. "Make your bed." "Pick your shoes up." "Did you put deodorant on?" "Clean your room." "Why are those clothes under your bed?" "Sit up." "Stop playing." "Wash your face." "Brush your teeth." "Take the trash out." Good grief! I'm sure they get tired of me talking just as much as I get tired of talking to them, yet I bet I win! Consistent parenting is the key. Don't get tired of talking! Some of these seeds we're planting have GOT to take root!
