When talking to friends about our kids, my wife and I are big advocates of talking-up our kids, as opposed to down.

I’m not sure where we heard this message, but the speaker made a huge impact on us.

My kids are awesome - Brett and Crystal
So often, I hear people say mean things about their own kids. Like, "oh, we have a teenager, we all know what THAT’S like! - as if it’s a bad thing.

If it’s a bad thing, and you’re the parent, I guess we know who’s responsible!

But I hear it a lot - people running down their kids, who they supposedly love, and whom the kids are looking up to. Who would look up to a parent who said mean things about them?

I think comedians can get away with it, if it’s relevant and in fun. But I don’t like it when my friends say negative, demeaning things about their own kids.

The Bible even speaks directly to young people, "Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young".

Instead of trashing your own kids, how about finding something you can brag about? Wouldn’t that bless them?
