At the Well

At the Well's discussion questions from yesterday....
What is your definition of friendship?
Friendship is when you're able to trust somebody with something important to you. You talk periodically and you help eachother through the hard times. Friendship is when you have a bond with somebody that you don't have with other people on the street.
Did you follow the belief that we should not be friends with our children?
Seeing as how I am 16 and don't have any children, I couldn't have followed that belief. :)
Has that changed?
Again, have no children.
In what ways can we befriend our husbands and children?
Ok, this one I am able to answer. Just by listening and showing that you're always there, no matter what, a woman can befriend her husband and children.
What can we do to teach these skills to someone else?
The best way to learn I've noticed is by example. If a woman is friends with her husband and her children and a newly wed couple or engaged couple notices, chances are the new bride or soon-to-be-bride will follow after the other woman's footsteps.

Teaching by example is the absolute best way! Wise words for sure!

Well to The Well!!

Taking the time to be with our families, whether we're parents or children, is the key, and leading by example is the very best way to teach and lead.

I'm so glad you've joined us!
