Five Minute Friday: Intentional

Where has this month gone?

Here we are on another Friday, linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday community.

This week’s word is intentional.

********************

It’s ironic that this week’s word is intentional.

I’ve been beating my head against the wall on a blog post that I just can’t pull together.  It’s  about what kids need, ages 0 to 18.

It comes from my desire to be more intentional with grandparenting than I was with parenting, but it’s bigger than that, too.

It’s about what kids need in general.  What they need from the church.  What they need from their parents.  What they’re learning from our culture.  The messages they get from different sources that aren’t helpful.

Advertisers are generally not thinking of kids’ best interests.  The educational system has a lot of pros and cons.

What can we do to be intentional about what kids are really learning?

    Such great questions. Advertisers are super intentional about getting our kid’s attention (and in turn, our money). We need to be just as intentional about making our influence, as parents, greater than that of the negative influences of the world.
