Workshop to focus on positive
The LSU AgCenter has an exciting workshop coming up July 17, 18, 19. Think back when you were young, were there people in your life that had a significant influence on you — positive or negative? I heard a parent thank another parent for saving her son. He was told by a teacher that he would never make it out of high school, he would never succeed. Negative statements like this can affect a child for the rest of his or her life. Our children try to live up to these self-fulfilled prophecies. We have to be careful what we say to our children.
