Works-for-Me Wednesday

This is a themed week at Shannon's place, so be sure to head on over and check out all the tips related to parenting in the Great Parenting Advice Edition.

Our family has a motto. We probably don't remind our children of it as often as we should, but when we do it always yields immediate results in behavior and attitude. It is simply this:

"People are more important than things."

The motto is widely transferable and always makes an impact. Our children could recite it early on and understood it from the get-go. Works for me!

That's a great family motto, Peach. I can't think of a better thought to instill in kids than this.
