Jacquie has inspired me to aspire for more flexibility and creativity in my quilting.
Donna has inspired me to aspire for better piecing.How do I inspire a certain seventeen year old to aspire for greater things? I know I can’t force him. One he is bigger than me. Two it only makes him want to rebel more. I’m not saying he is a bad kid. He is far from that. He is hard working and kind. If someone needs something done in the neighborhood they call this kid. They know he will do a good job. He helps my dad when he asks and is very good to my grandma and the widow in the neighborhood. Maybe my expectations are too high. But he has been hanging with some friends that are not encouraging the best behavior. He has not been being honest with me. And sometimes he is rebellious and defiant. I know these can be normal teenage behavior. Darn, kids don’t come with instruction manuals and even if you could find one how would you know you had the right one each kid is so different. Do any of you experienced mother have some words of wisdom you would like to share on how to inspire a child to aspire?
