Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat, word for word, what you shouldn’t have said. Or do what you shouldn't have done...

Last year in the play-offs Marty Brodeur blew a gasket after he was interfered with which led to the game winning-goal against Carolina.

While he was 'jobbed' by the ref's his conduct after the goal was scored was not justified. The next day his daughter confronted him, "I saw what you did last night, Daddy."

When his daughter refused to tell him what she had seen him do, Marty simply apologized. Good plan.

A couple weeks back while I was driving Mali heard me say something he wasn't accustomed to hearing me say. He grew quiet & after we got home said, 'Why did you say that word?'


I apologized.

What are saying when your kids are around? How are you behaving? What are you going to do about it?

I can't hear what you say because I see your life.

Proverbs 10:32-35
Don't walk around with a chip on your shoulder,
always spoiling for a fight.
Don't try to be like those who shoulder their way through life.
Why be a bully?
"Why not?" you say. Because God can't stand twisted souls.
It's the straightforward who get his respect.

Gods curse blights the house of the wicked,
but he blesses the home of the righteous.
He gives proud skeptics a cold shoulder,
but if you're down on your luck, he's right there to help.
Wise living gets rewarded with honor;
stupid living gets the booby prize.
