As a parent, I have often relied on the following scripture whenever I get frustrated with Violet. It has a whole new meaning to me now that we home school...
"Let my teaching fall like rain, and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants."
Whether you home school or not, Deuteronomy 32:2 is a verse that every parent can relate to at some point or another. A parent's words (and how they're spoken) have the greatest impact on a child, more so than anyone else in their lives. And I often use this verse to remind myself of that fact. I want my words to inspire Violet and cause her to believe in herself, not the other way around.
