About the time we find a scrap of worth or significance, something happens to make us fully aware of how much we lack. A harsh word. A broken relationship. A blunder or failure.

Why It’s OK To Label Our Kids

We’ve all heard it said that it’s important not to label our children. “She’s the shy one.” “He’s the trouble maker.” “If she’s this moody now she’s going to be big trouble by the time she’s a teen.” As a mom of ten, I learned personally that this type of labeling does not benefit our children.
