Speak softly. Better yet, whisper when you need to discipline. If you treat your child with respect, you’ll have a respectful child who grows up to be a respectful (and respected) adult.

Kellogg’s Corn Flakes were created by John Henry Kellogg as part of his educational and medical work to discourage sexual activity—especially masturbation.
While working as the superintendent at the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan, physician John Harvey Kellogg developed a few flaked grain breakfast cereals—including Corn Flakes—as healthy, ready-to-eat meals to help curb sexual desire.
Kellogg never consummated his marriage. He and his wife kept separate bedrooms and adopted all seven of their children.

Love this series.
I would love to do this with some of my conversations with little man.
Tomorrow we celebrate.
Tomorrow we give thanks for our time together.
Tomorrow we bless our fortuitous gifts.
Tomorrow we stop for just a moment to bond, and to connect.
Tomorrow is our fifteenth wedding anniversary.
I am so grateful to have met, made friends with, and married a magnanimous man.
I am thankful for the wonderful years that we’ve spent together that have disappeared in the blink of an eye.
I appreciate the journey that we have shared, growing, changing, learning, and loving in union.
My life is peaceful because of you.
My heart is expansive, open, and blessed.
I am inspired, impassioned, and hopeful.
You restore my faith, give me reason to excel, drive my dreams, and fortify my inner strength.
You bring out the best of me.
Here’s to love and a life full of blessings, light and wonder.
May we have many, many more magnificent years of marriage.
Here’s to us.

All of them.
