This third value has us echo'ing a shortened version of Bill and Ted's Slogan to each other a lot. "Be Excellent".

I've been thinking about this a lot and I'm curious if you guys had to boil it down to 3 things what values would you want your kids to pick up?
My 1 and 2 would be the same as yours. When I try to think of a #3, I think it ends up being a sub-value of #1. An argument could be made that your #3 and #2 are just off-shoots of #1 (and that's a good thing).

But if I had to have value #3, it may be "be fearless". (again an offshoot of #1). Either that or "have fun".

I guess I should be inventorying some Poland springs or something right now.

We are missing 12 cases of shrimp, anyone know where it is?

This is too easy... I like this app

Who you got for the first Dad to be thrown out of the parks? I have dibs on Barry.
You mean no one has been thrown out yet? You do know that there are already a bunch of guys down there. If I had to guess, Barry may be a good choice. Of course it may be several at once too.

But then he comes into my office and says how he's been real happy with my performance as of late and all the responsbility I've taken on hasn't gone unnoticed.



8 more hours till I'm busting out of this place!
That may change when he comes looking for you tomorrow and your not there. I guess you can tell him you had a responsibility to be at the DDC. Safe Travels.

We use the three general rules:

1) Respect others and treat them as you expect to be treated.

2) Respect yourself and always give your best effort.

3) Always be humble and help those less fortunate than we are when possible.

It is pretty similar. Never even thought to add god in there as a rule. I guess Sunday mass and the fact that religion has always been a part of our lives we take it as a expected. Like your list as well.

Ryan, looks like you and I had this conversation a while back when I posted about it at the other site:

http://disdads.com/archives/1397

But the first two you mentioned are the ones laid out for us in Scripture by God Himself, so that seems like a great place to start! Outward behavior reflects the desires of the heart, so it's the desires of the child's heart that we need to address. Do you want what's best for you, or do you think about others first?

Hey Dads!

Long time lurker, 1st time poster. Just wanted to wish you all a great trip. Just got back from the World 3 weeks ago. If I would've known about this, I'd have pushed my wife to wait until after the holidays.

Figured I better get signed up and say hi finally. I'm a Western PA native, and father/husband (DW30,DS7). Have read you criteria a few times whenever I need a chuckle, and I'll just go with I qualify for #77

Well, happy times to those who are in the World now, and best wishes to those looking forward to future visits.

Have you read "Shepharding a Child's Heart"?

Yes--took a class on it at church several years ago. That's where I plagiarized the ideas from.

This list changes frequently and may not accurately reflect the current views of the said members in this list. Allegiance to any particular member can and most likely will result in terrible consequences, such as name-calling, nasty comments, and the occasional crop-dusting.

uhmmm, this is wrong..... its should be:
