I would like to ask you a question.
Feel free to take a moment, and ask everyone around you as well.
How do you try to not judge people or situations quickly so you have an opportunity to really understand things first?
Life Lesson #2849: Follow Tinker Bell
This is one of those big, life-changing lessons that can sometimes be extremely difficult to teach. Heck, sometimes it is difficult to lead by example.
Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover
We are all prone to pass judgement on other people unfairly for any number of reasons. We could be tired from not getting any sleep, extremely mad for failing a big test or upset over a lost friend. The reason itself does not matter. What matters is the way we make others feel. Passing judgement can be a really hurtful thing to do.
It is something I teach my children about because it would break my heart to see my child hurt another person by passing judgement before she really knew them.
I love finding things that my daughters are interested in that teach good lessons. One of the most recent ones was during our family movie night, when we sat down together, munched on popcorn and watched Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast, Now on Blu-ray, Digital HD & Disney Movies Anywhere.
Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast
If you haven’t seen this movie yet, you are in for a treat. I just know you are going to enjoy it!
This movie teaches a lesson that my kids do not want to hear from me. You know how it is…mom starts rambling on for the fifth time today about something and it becomes extremely easy to ignore. When Tinker Bell and Fawn send this message to my kids, it is so cool that they can’t help but start understanding the importance of being considerate of others.
I swear Disney movies are the best influences for my kids. Especially when I am no longer cool when making them sit through yet another heart to heart conversation.
It also makes my life, as mom, just a little bit easier…especially because we got our own little neverbeast this week. Meet Pudge!
This is our latest addition to the Say family and had a lot of iffy moments since getting him. In the beginning it was difficult for me to understand that there were other people outisde of my immediate family that were excited about Pudge. It was hard for me to take their feelings into consideration because he was our puppy (Neverbeast) and had just brought him home.
That wasn’t right.
It was because I had recently watched this movie that I remembered I need to take other people’s feelings into consideration. I need to understand the situation from every angle possible in order to better myself and be a good role model for my children.
Let me say one thing: It was NOT easy, but it was worth it. It felt great to put someone first simply because I cared about the way they feel.
Spring Gift Inspiration
If you have a youngster in your life that has a birthday during the spring, Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast is the gift of the season. My girls have tons of cousins, all of whom are extremely close, and I have heard nothing but chatter about this movie for weeks.
I would say that is a pretty good test group!
The bonus with this movie is essentially what I talked about before. Our kids love this movie, and the movie teaches our children valuable lessons about how to treat others. It’s a win-win!
