Pushing Down a Wall

This post originally appeared on tapestryministry.org March 5, 2013.

Since January my family has implemented more changes than I can count and has been living in transition ever since. We get to each Friday and celebrate that we have survived another week. And we are thankful for all these changes and the ones that we still haven’t gone through, but we are looking forward to when we can start saying goodbye to transition.

That being said, I don’t think we would be doing as well as we are (don’t worry we have bad, ugly days) if we hadn’t been through Empowered to Connect (ETC) training. When my oldest is headed towards spiraling out of control at bedtime and I can look over and snap a picture of her “pushing down a wall” and see my youngest daughter copying her – that is a gratifying moment.

We went through our first ETC parent training when our oldest daughter was 18 months old, and now after 3 years of teaching and implementing the strategies we are seeing more regularly the fruits of our labor. She is initiating the use of the strategies – at least at bedtime.

So if you are new to Tapestry and/or ETC, let me tell you that the time spent learning the strategies and teaching the strategies is worth it; it does take hard work by both the parents and the children but especially the parents. And if you have been using the strategies for awhile, I hope that you too are having gratifying moments, maybe they’re rare or maybe they’re everyday, either way, let them be the encouragement you need to face another day.

If you have any examples of gratifying moments with your children, I would love for you to share your stories in the comments.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
