“We make sacrifices so that I can stay at home. We drive two old cars and the house is nothing fancy. But we make it, and we’re happy. The good news is that we get to focus on teaching our kids how to live the faith that’s so important to us.”

“I can fix almost anything you can break. I can cook a mean chili. I’ll clean if I have to. And I’ll even go to the drug-store for…you know. I want to help teach the kids, but I’m not quite sure what to do. I sure heck don’t want to screw up!”

“I said I wanted it all and I got it. Wonderful kids, great husband, and a good career—I’ve got a lot of plates spinning. I try hard for work-family balance but there’s never enough time to teach my children as much as I’d like.”

“Whoa! Wait a minute. My kids were babies just a couple of years ago, how can I POSSIBLY be a grandparent? But I am, and I’m PROUD! And want to do everything I can to make sure that my precious grandchildren succeed in life!”

“Geez, I feel like I’m still a kid myself. I want to teach my child, but I’ve got to figure out work, school, babysitting, bills, relationships and everything else. Besides, what do I know about teaching a little kid? Can’t it wait until he goes to school?”

“We worked SO hard in school, and it paid off with two great careers. Now we can afford some of the good things in life. As parents we’re a little older, a little busier, and a lot more tired than we’d like. We really need some ideas (and a nap).”
