The Treehouse

While at the children’s museum in Indianapolis Ellie and I climbed the inside of this huge tree house. At the top was a boy around the age of 10. He shouted several times “this tree house is so stupid.” I’m a few days shy of 32 and I think the tree house is out of this world phenomenal but I guess everyone is free to his or her own feelings. 😂😂😂😂 10 mins after he began his loud spill about the tree house being stupid I assume his mother made her way up the inside of the tree house. When she made it to the top she told him to stop using the term “stupid” and to be more respectful of others around him. Props to mom! 🎉👏🏻🎈I was thankful she came to put him in his place. To be honest I wasn’t phased by his outburst. I’ve worked with kids a while now. I tune most of it out but He was a bit loud. She wasn’t mean either. She was straightforward and to the point. On our way out of the museum, that same boy was leaving with his family, but wait where was his mom? Then it hit me!!! 😳 The lady who I thought was his mother putting him in his place was NOT HIS MOTHER! 😳😳😳😳😳 No wonder he made a quick exit from that treehouse! 😂😂😂 Guys! I’m still clapping for that brave lady. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I wish I were that brave at times. I’m the mom who lets parents correct their own children and I’ll talk to Ellie after about why we don’t use the term “stupid.” However, if Ellie were talking that way I’d be ok with someone verbally in a nice tone asking her to be respectful because it really does take a village. I can totally see both sides. This entire experience raises the question! Are you the “say something” parent or the “stay quiet” parent when it comes to other parents kids? In your opinion how should we handle situations like these?

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events! I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! This past January I made a promise to God that I would faithfully write a devotional each week. I wanted to have 12 strong ones to post by the end of the 2018. I hit 12 and decided to start a blog. I pray that you take the time to read what God has placed in my heart. I know He has something to say to you!
