To do this Summer with your kids – Give the Key to Success

Big reveal: What is the single most important key to success? Etiquette! I know families who have spreadsheets for each child, ticking off academics and sports achievement, yet forget to teach and model even so much as saying “Good morning” or “Please.” How likely is this to work? Unfortunately, the majority of children today have even less training! They arrive to the workforce thinking they are the king of the universe — just like a two year old does. Then they wonder why they can’t hold down a job, keep a rental situation, or have friends. DON’T LET THIS BE YOUR CHILD! Train them in basic social skills. It is called etiquette.

Give a listen. It’s light, but it will be surprising, revealing!

Instrumental music, with the science behind the binaural beat craze, but also with a connection to King David — a different key! I really do think it is healing. I recommend you check it out. For the whole family. Grandmother who says she is getting nervous will like it. Those competing in the workplace and hence are tired will like it. The kids may tolerate it — and I think you will find a positive difference. Play it in your house and see. Look over to the right hand column and click through.
