Run Riot Illusion

Isn't it so frustrating when you want your kids to really listen and comprehend something yet it seems like you are talking to a foreigner who just nods in agreement just to be polite.  And so it seems pointless to go over something again and again when you know that they are probably not getting it at all, but we try because we want then to understand.  Yet sure enough 10 minutes later they do whatever it was that constituted your entire conversation in the first place.  

This is usually the scenario when you are trying to be constructive and have a teaching moment with your kid and it usually ends in shattered expectations moments later.

However there are glimpses of hope.

Sometimes, and these moments are very rare, your child spits out a nugget of wisdom that you poured into them who knows when and it makes you believe that deep down they do listen (still, only sometimes).  

Thank God for those glimpses of hope.  They are true treasures.  

Can I get an "Amen?"
