What I like to do on this week is make my own blue ribbons for the kids. Every time I catch them doing a "Blue Ribbon Act" I give them one! It's not a competition or anything, just something to motivate me to give more positive reinforcement to my children.
"Our children are God’s children. That is their true identity and potential. His very plan is to help His children overcome mistakes and misdeeds and to progress to become as He is. Disappointing behavior, therefore, should be considered as something temporary, not permanent—an act, not an identity."
