We can learn to be better parents by studying the scriptures to see how Heavenly Father deals with his children. We can also learn how not to act by observing Satan's methods. What can you learn from the following chart to help you be a better parent.
The Lord's Way VS
Lord: Love unfeigned—charity, caring for others' welfare despite any wrongdoing.
Satan: Physical force—being hostile and unfairly using physical strength.
Lord: Acceptance—seeing others in eternal perspective, judging with compassion.
Satan; Blame—condemning others' faults without compassion.
Lord: Integrity—being honest, a personal commitment to righteousness.
Satan: Accusation—provoking guilt, reminding people of their mistakes to punish them and justify oneself.
Lord: Persuasion—teaching with compassion, kindly pointing out advantages and disadvantages of situations.
Satan: Intimidation—ruling by fear because others are afraid of one's power.
Lord: Gentleness—soft, not treating others harshly.
Satan: Threat—expressing an intent to physically or emotionally harm someone.
Lord: Trust—lovingly allowing others to exercise their agency to choose right or wrong and to accept the consequences.
Satan: Pride—self-righteously preaching moral truths and condemning others.
Lord: Responsibility—acknowledging and assuming your role in any situation including repenting for past wrongdoing.
Satan: Self-centeredness—refusing to accept responsibility for your actions.
Lord: Meekness—humility, uncomplaining, and teachable
Satan: Haughtiness—being unteachable, proud, and pessimistic.

In light of all the newest Cell phone cancer/brain tumor research, we are getting a landline and will drop cell coverage for emergency use only.
Cell Phones, Cordless & WiFi
Wireless Communication Produces Dangerous Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR)
Interventions to Maximize Health and Minimize EMR Risks
Recommendations from the Safe Wireless Initiative.
Increase your body’s resistance to EMR damage: Maximize your health
Increase intake of natural oxidative stress fighters, such as antioxidants, melatonin, vitamins B, C, E and folic acid.
Eat fresh, chemical-free, organic meats, fruits and vegetables. Limit heavy metal buildup by knowing the
source of your fish and other meats. Main sources of heavy metal ingestion are fish, poultry, meats
and tap water. Eat organic whole grains – test for allergic responses.
Eliminate/minimize caffeine and alcoholic beverages, especially distilled liquor.
Drink carbon filtered water.Primarily use glass or ceramic containers. Limit bottled water in plastic bottles. Use recycled paper products for drinking and eating; avoid plastic or Styrofoam.
Exercise and stretch daily to increase metabolism, not to train or work out. Breathe slowly and deeply. Surround yourself with nature as often as possible. Do sweat and clean lymph.
Minimize exposure to chemicals
Use chemical-free, natural products as they are often gentle on your body
and the environment. Avoid chemical cleansers – vinegar, salt and baking soda work extremely well.
Take cool or lukewarm showers/baths, instead of hot.
Avoid/minimize exposure to bright and fluorescent light. Use subdued full-spectrum/natural incandescent bulbs or candle light as much as possible. Increase melatonin naturally by sleeping in the darkest room possible.
Get up to a couple hours of sun exposure daily unless Electrohypersensitivity won’t allow it. When exposed, wear light-colored clothing and hat, if needed.
Take time daily for personal silence.
Consult a clinician experienced in
EMR sensitivity. Use of any intervention must be under qualified supervision, as many devices may increase long-term sensitivity if used improperly.
Minimize your EMR exposure: Decrease hazardous risks.
Minimize all exposure and usage of wireless communication: cell phones, cordless phones, and WiFi devices.
Turn cell phone off when not in use and sleeping. Never keep it near your head or use it to play games, movies, etc.
Keep cell phone at least 6-7 inches away from your body and others while on, talking, texting and downloading.
Use air tube headsets or speaker mode when talking. Wireless and wired headsets still conduct radiation!
Never keep cell phone in pocket, purse, back or on hip all day. The hip produces 80% of the body’s red blood cells and is especially vulnerable to EMR damage.-Close proximity may also affect fertility.
Do not talk on cell or cordless phone when pregnant, with a baby/small child in arms, under age 16, or while
in a vehicle (car, train, plane, subway) –Radiation gets trapped and is higher in these closed metal zones!
Minimize other EMR exposures to developing fetus via Ultrasounds and Electronic Fetal Monitoring unless absolutely necessary.
Replace all cordless and WiFi items with wired, corded lines (phones, Internet, games, appliances, devices, etc.). The cordless phone base emits high levels of EMR – even when no one is making a call.
Minimize/space out computer use, sit back from the screen; flat screens are preferable. Use wired Internet connections, not WiFi – especially for laptops. Keep laptops off of the body and away from metal surfaces.
Keep a low-EMR sleep, home, and personal zone. Move alarm clock
radio at least 3 feet from head or use battery power; 6 feet is the recommended distance from all electronic devices during sleep. Avoid waterbeds, electric blankets and metal bed frames. Futons/wood frames are better than metal-coiled mattresses and box-springs.
When using electric stoves, cook on back burners instead of front, as much as possible. Metals attract EMR: keep them away fromand off of the body. Use glass, cast iron and uncoated pans to cook with.
Measure EMR from wireless and wired devices with appropriate meters (see www.safewireless.org). To decrease exposures, install EMR filters and preventive technologies to electrical circuits, devices, appliances, etc.

I grabbed this yesterday for ideas when my kids bring up different subjects, it has ideas of ways to teach different things. I am not certain we will use it much, but I got it used for 3 bucks on amazon so if its junk, I'll toss it!
I got this one last night on amazon as well, really excited to read this one
This one looked super fun, so I grabbed this one too.
