The virtue for the month of January is:
Self Control is choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to.
“God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a godly life.”
2 Peter 1 : 3 a (NIrV)
Week 1: Doing what you should can keep you safe. I can trust God no matter what.
Week 2: Think before you lose your temper. I need to make the wise choice.
Week 3: Choose your words carefully. I need to make the wise choice.
Week 4: Know when to stop. I need to make the wise choice.
Our lives are busy. As parents, we want to prioritize our children. We want to do everything we can to invest in our relationship with them, to guide them developmentally and to help them grow in their faith in Christ. But it’s just so easy to get caught up in the urgent day-to-day business of life.
This Parent Cue App provides you with simple CUES throughout the week that remind you to pause and make the most of everyday moments.
Every month, Parent Cue will focus on one specific virtue, or life application. You will receive prompts for videos, activities, discussion questions and more that will help you connect with your child around this one key virtue. These prompts will come in the form of Drive Time videos, Hang Time activities, and Meal Time discussion starters to help you fit them into the day-to-day moments of your routine. There’s even a section just for you called Parent Time that’s filled with parent blogs, podcasts and more.
CUE Box and Studio252.tv have so many great resources for my family. We love the Meal Time Discussion guides, but we don’t always have dinner at home, and I forget to take those guides with me. And my sons love watching the videos online. I have often wished I had those when we’re sitting in traffic or hanging out between ball games. The other day, we were in a brainstorming meeting and thought up a solution: a belt clip for the CUE Box! That way you could easily hook your CUE Box right on your belt or purse and have it with you everywhere. You would always be ready to make the most of those every day moments with your kids. But as we tested it out, it seemed a bit awkward and, I’m sorry to say, looked pretty dorky. Maybe a CUE Box belt clip wasn’t the answer. If only there was a way to keep the basics of the valuable CUE Box resources with me all the time—on some kind of device that I always carry with me . . .
