Thoughts
The notes in this book are thought provoking and would be a great gift to all parents. There are 25 notes and I enjoyed them all, but my favorites were:
Honor Your Commitments
Every Day Counts
Once You Post, It’s Out There Forever
When In Doubt, Be Nice

If I could only give you one example of what’s in this book, it would be from Note 7: “Words can be daggers to the heart, or they can lift it up.” Every child need to learn this early in life. Like “Once you post it…” Once you say it, you can’t take it back. I think words are a powerful weapon that should never be spoken in anger.

There are also quotes at the end of the notes. At the end of Note 9 there is a quote by an unknown author which says “Everything You Do Comes Back To You”. I believe this 100%.

I enjoyed this book very much, but as I’ve thought about it and have read my notes since I finished it, I find myself liking it more and more. It’s a book you can pick up from time to time and search the list of note titles and find the one that helps with something going on in your life at the time. I think this book is great for your children, but the advice can be used for any family member or your friends.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this thought & discussion provoking book for the entire family.

  2. What a great quote, “words are daggers to the heart or they lift up….”
    Great advice. This looks like a very good book

  3. This sounds really interesting.

  4. I’ll have to look for this one. Lately I’ve noticed that several of the more advice related books I’ve read tend to end with me really loving them but then as time goes on I like them less and less. This sounds like one that sticks with you in a very positive way.
