We’ve been struggling just a bit with Hallie’s sassy/bossy/mean personality. We see it with her friends, her brother and even us. So we had a special family home evening the other night to discuss the importance of kindness and being nice. We recounted the days events and listed what were kind things and what were mean things. We talked of how we can be nice and some different solutions to problems that might arise.

Hallie looked at me and let out an over exaggerated sigh. I asked her what was wrong.

“You’re just really talking a lot, can’t you let dad talk now.”

I think the lesson is already helping…
