I came across a link this morning on the folly of first time obedience training. I've had parenting spells in which I've tried first time obedience, usually following tough times with my kids, as you might recall if you've read here for very long. Each time, I've abandoned it for many of the reasons Sally Clarkson mentions in her post, First time obedience, really?
Sally Clarkson writes very long posts and I don't usually have time to read them. She's a stream-of-consciousness blogger. I guess kind of like me? Ouch. Only she has tons of wisdom to share!
Her post above is worth any time you can give it! The post received 114 comments, which gives you some idea of the number who were blessed by it!
