You've Been Caught...


After spending ten years in the business world, I was used to feedback.  There where specific goals and deadlines I had to meet.  There were people I was accountable to at the end of every day.  And yet when I began the job of a parent, I realized how much I missed hearing the words, "Good job.  You are right on track."  No one tells us we are doing an amazing job.  Very rarely do we see the results of our work for years to come.  I want to change that.

I've shared with you that I try to tell people when I see that they are being kind to a child.  I'm going to go one step further and give them a card to keep with them so that they can be reminded that what they are doing (as hard as it is!) is all worth it in the end. I will also be writing about these exchanges so that you can be inspired by their love.

Would you tell them, too?  I have uploaded a file that includes the Perchable Cards for you to print out on card stock and hand out whenever you see someone being good to a child.  I would love it if you would share the story on Facebook as well.  

It's time that we started supporting each other and giving other parents and care givers the praise that they deserve.  Who can you catch being a good parent today?
