Playing the Jesus Card- checkmate!

3 signs that your child has superior debating skills

Context:

Your child is watching bloody animated dinosaur battles on youtube.

You intervene to stop the viewing and the following dialogue ensues:

‘Please stop watching this video, you will get nightmares’

‘I never have nightmares’ sign #1

‘But this is so violent’

‘Mommy, it is just a cartoon’ sign #2

‘Don’t watch dinosaurs killing each other, it will scare you.’

‘Nothing scares me because Jesus is in my heart, right?’  sign #3

Sign #3 is of particular interest: if your child emphasizes the ‘right?’ at the end of his/her statement, take it as a sign that you are TOAST. The child has learned that you can never beat the Jesus Card and is now using the card to his/her advantage like a master negotiator.

Abort the mission and retreat.

I certainly did.

After graduating with a Major in Journalism, Mireille’s career path took an unexpected turn away from her beloved pen and paper. It took an equally unexpected turn of events for Mireille to start writing again.After spending many hours (too many!) watching super hero cartoons with her son, she realized that most Christian children are unaware of their superpowers!She set about creating the SuperHolies: the Fruits of the Holy Spirit re-imagined as superpowers to grab the children’s attention and teach them about their faith and its glory.

    Jesus taught us to be like children , their thinking are pure, no yukki stuff , no dark thought, everything is bad, they are not a robot , they are smart , imaginative, .when my kids were small , when I tell them something , I don’t give orders, I just discuss the pour and contre, and if they are right , I listen to them.? Specially when they grow up , you are suppose not be only a mother , but their friend ,., your first 5 years , you stablished your way of life, What you except of them.?they grow up not lying because you don’t lie at them , anyway, I believe the first year are very important.? And it’s up to the parent to give them a good exemple.?
    How about your book .? Did you finish it yet.?? I can’t wait any longer. My sin is I have no patient.?? ❤️??
    Thanks , for all the Saints , may their blessing be upon us all.
