gabby's stick to it day {giveaway}

It's only been recently that the Gabby series entered our lives, and we love them! They have such a good lesson for young girls. Gabby's Stick To It Day is no exception. When Gabby, the guardian angel, observes Sophie quitting when things get hard, she makes it her mission to teach her to "stick to it."

Emma G loved the story and I loved the message that I think it so relevant for young girls. With the short attention span of kids, it's easy to quit something, especially when it gets hard. Teaching them to stick with it, through the good and bad, is such a great life lesson that will benefit them in their adult years. Whether it be sports, school, or simply cleaning your room, sticking with something is a mark of good character.

I think it's hard to encourage anyone to stick to it when the going gets rough, but one thing that helps is being there to listen to them brainstorm solutions.

Good question. I tend to be more of a tough it out kind of mom- so I have always taught my kids that they need to dig in their heels & try harder. I don't really let them focus on the set back- but rather the goal that they need to put more effort towards.

That would be a lovely book for my friend's girls, so I would love to try my luck for them. As for your question, simply behave like that yourself -- and your children will follow your lead. Thus it's so important to be a good example in everything which really counts. :)

Your family photos shown in the other post are just wonderful. I hope your friend gets a lot of sessions booked -- she certainly has talent! :)

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit
