Our daughter is almost 15. When she was little we spanked her for any direct defiance or disobedience. We taught her contentedness in small things and to be satisfied with simplicity. We also homeschool.
I came in off the land today, and she made me some baked apples and fresh pizza.
NEVER ONE TIME has she once back talked my wife or I. She has no interest in makeup. She has no interest in fashions or jewelry. She can destroy me in bible trivia.
She has several like minded friends too. I over hear the teenage conversations some times.... It's not about boys or gossip. It's about canning, new bunnies born, goats & farming, and sewing stitch types etc. etc.
....I'm unworthy to have a daughter like her.
