Listen to counsel and receive instruction so that you may be wise in later life. Proverbs 19 v.20 HCSB

Providing expectations for your children and young adults that live in your home is tiring.

ITC – exhausting.

Is it worth it!

Margaret Thatcher  left a powerful legacy for young men and women throughout the world.

In the movie the Iron Lady,  Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher remembers

her father provided clear instructions for her as she was growing up.

He did not leave her in the dark on his expectations.

Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your character for it becomes your destiny.

Words wound when accusations are laid out. Words cut when punishment arrives in a  harsh sarcastic tone.

Instruction must heal and encourage.   Occasionally our children may come to us for advice. Hold your thought before answering and see what Gods Word says. When the answer is not present in scripture, pray and wait with them.

Watch as God reveals His good and wonderful things to your children.

NOTE – The Term ITC comes from Barbara Tompkins who has taught”The Moms Class” in Tucson,  Arizona for the past 31 years.
