Continued Education

When you would give callers “assignments” and ask them to follow up with you later, I did whatever you assigned to those callers!  And I learned a lot about myself from refraining, restraining, and retraining.

I never felt I was a terrible nag but drawing my attention to it allowed me to notice that even doing it a little bit was detrimental to the love I shared with my husband.  I didn’t think I was a bad parent, but allowing my husband to take over discipline for a few weeks let me notice that he had some techniques that I wanted to learn.  I realized you were teaching me self-discipline a few days at a time.  I didn’t have a great mom to show me these things, but I still got to learn them…from you. 

I hope you continue to do these assignments because I’m not done learning!
