Those ideas looked familiar! We hosted one of the Tripps at our church for a conference a few years ago to speak about parenting. Can't remember which Tripp....

A long time ago you posted something that also reminded me of "Wild at Heart". Have you read that one? I think it was your finale post to one of your TRs.. I'm not a big reader, but those are two that I still refer to from time to time.

I'm winging it and hoping I get a late A or early B boarding. How come when they tell everyone before boarding that it is a full flight, Everyone sits in a row by themselves anyway? Then the people that are flying together get screwed and have to separate? They know someone is gonna end up sitting next to them.

1. Love God
2. Love Others
3. Do your best.

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?
Respect yourself
Respect others
Do your best everyday.

It was probably sent down to Ohana... they know Barry is coming.

I'm taking a course on counseling that was put together by Paul Tripp. Much of the same ideas, actually.

And yes, Wild at Heart was terrific and a big influence on me, which is probably why I echo some of those same ideas as well. I have enjoyed all of Eldredge's follow-up books as well. I highly recommend last year's book, Beautiful Outlaw.

I didn't know anyone read those.


Welcome to the Club. Might be a good idea to pay your dues now when there are fewer of us around.

I thought they quit selling the priority boarding after it was sold through A.

I do know that people who purchase Business Select fares get at the front of A. Then people who have a higher rewards class, then people who purchase priority seating. I think it is almost impossible anymore to get A just by checking in early.

Good thing I'm bringing my girls so we'll get to board before B.

Nice job on BOG! Can't wait to hear about it!
You're guess appears to be correct. We bought our tickets about the same time as the people flying down with us but that waited and checked in several hours after us and yet are boarding numbers are all together.

But if I had to have value #3, it may be "be fearless". (again an offshoot of #1). Either that or "have fun".
Yeah I think these do tend to derive from one of the items.

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.
Respect for others and yourself is really important. I like your list.

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?
Yeah I vaguely remembered a discussion about our legacy. What we want to have taught our kids. I guess my thought today was along the same lines but maybe a little more tactical. I'm tired of having discussions about specific behaviors and would love to have something simple that I can point the kids to that everything boils down too.

IE I want to be able to stop saying "don't hit your brother/sister and just ask them "is that respecting or loving your brother/sister"

I need to check out the books you and Chris mentioned. I've most recently been through "Raising a Modern day Knight" ad really enjoyed it.

My son and I are very similar, most of our confrontations are around things that I can tell are going to end badly for him and behavior that he's exhibiting that I know is going to negatively impact him.

There's more than one advantage to flying armed. We always have to preboard on SWA to ID ourselves to the Captain...

Then it's open seating...LOL

Of course, everyone is looking at you when you do it so they know something is up.

I guess you could get 2 seats together if you boarded last too by flashing some steel.

Now now...always concealed....of course, you can't drink or snooze either...

Both of which are my favorite activities on flights.

I know what you mean. I'm in the same boat--wanting to move from "don't hit your brother" to the reasons why they did it. I've talked to them a lot about how you really have 2 choices: you can be selfish or you can be a servant. That idea came from a Mark Driscoll sermon on marriage that I listened to, but I think it applies to all areas of life.

John Eldredge wrote Wild At Heart plus some follow-up books that deal with what drives a man, and he and his wife wrote "Captivating" together which deals with the things that drive women. I thought these were really good. Shepherding a Child's Heart comes from Paul (I think) Tripp. They all come from a Christian perspective, in case anyone else looking into these would be bothered by that.

I haven't heard of "Raising a Modern Day Knight", but I'll check that out.

I was just struggling with that last night with my middle son, trying to explain to him how throwing temper tantrums isn't helping him get anything he wants.
