This is What I Believe…

One of the most common things that happens to me after I speak with a group is a line of people who want to ask me questions (or yell at me, which happened recently). No one likes to ask their questions in front of a group, because somehow they think their question is silly, when in fact there are no silly questions and the person sitting next to you is probably wondering about the same thing you are. But this line of people always has questions, which is awesome. But unfortunately not everyone agrees with what I have to say, which is their choice and I'm good with that. When I present I make sure to explain that what I am talking about is my BELIEF in how things should be done. It is not the definitive answer to everything, but it is my BELIEF, and right now it's how I've chosen to approach this topic with my family and my three girls. Am I doing this the right way? Based on my research (which is a lot), and my family, YES, I believe I am doing this the right way. But as I also state in my presentation, I don't have all the answers, but I'm willing to find them if they exist. Hopefully my message comes through clear, and even if what I have to say is not the way you would do it, the intent is the same. Our goal with everyone should be about arming ourselves and our children with the tools to Make Good Decisions.
