The 60 Second Rule: For Parents & Spouses

Updated: Jun 18, 2022

Set the mood for the day with the 60 Second Rule. For the first 60 seconds in the morning—and the first 60 seconds when you see your child (or spouse) in the evening—you have to be totally positive. For 60 seconds you can’t complain, be grouchy. or negative. Instead, for 60 seconds, you have to be loving, caring, and kind.

This is an excert from the book Parenting with Focus by Katie Ely.

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”

Ephesians 4:2 (NIV)
