I love Gopi's example in loving young Surya. That example is something I want to remember. Thank you for sharing this, Becky, and thank you for posting such uplifting articles, Meridian!

What a beautiful reminder as a parent. Our whole goal is love as parents, we can't forget to internalize that and then react according to that love.

A touching and profound essay. What a gift she has!

Everyone needs love, and disobedient children are often craving it the most. You can discipline the action, but don't forget to love on that child even more. Thanks for your ongoing lessons and reminders, Becky.

I needed this today, thanks Becky!

Beautiful! Also good to know that even parents who are fumbling along in the dark can succeed!

Becky tells profound stories so clearly and touchingly. May we take her stories and apply them in our teaching, leading, and parenting.

Marci, you are too kind! Actually, the blessing was mine. The beautiful love given by two-year-olds is unmatchable. I carry it with me still today! And I might add, that you have been MY inspiration through the years! Thanks!

The work Becky has done and is doing in India is simply amazing. She is an incredible woman with much wisdom. When my daughter moved into their ward with my 2 year old grandson, she found out that Becky was the nursery coordinator. My daughter's response was, "I have hit the motherlode! Becky will be teaching my son!!" I am absolutely certain that if Becky would have gone to that Friday night meeting, everyone would have come home with a notebook full of parenting tips. Not just of John and Becky's parenting advice, but she would have pulled everyone's great ideas from them! She is phenomenal.

Experience is often the best teacher. Becky tells it like it is and I have learned a good lesson from Gopi and the defiant young student. Thanks for sharing.

A wonderful essay! Parent or not it's well worth reading, especially for the sweet and powerful message and the invitation to apply the lesson.
