Parenting 505

"A sweet and obedient child will enroll a father or mother only in Parenting 101. If you are blessed with a child who tests your patience to the nth degree, you will be enrolled in Parenting 505. Rather than wonder what you might have done wrong in the premortal life to be so deserving, you might consider the more challenging child a blessing and oppertunity to become more godlike yourself. With which child will your patience, long-suffering, and other Christlike virtues most likely be tested, developed and refined? Could it be that you need this child as much as this child needs you?"
Lynn G Robbins, of the Quorum of the Seventy - General Conference April 2011 ~ "What Manner of Men and Women Ought Ya to Be?"
