Give Your Kid an Extra Hug Today

Unless you were cut off from all online, televised, and print media yesterday and today, you’ve heard about the shocking, sad, upsetting, disheartening story of one of our LHS students thoughts to hire someone to kill is parents.  Here are some links if you missed it.

WSMV – La Vergne Teens Arrested in Plot to Kill Parents

This one hit really close to home.  My daughter has been friends with this kid since elementary school.  She said everyone at school yesterday was upset – as expected.  We talked for hours last night about all the kids involved (yes all the students know all the kids arrested even though the names have not been released).

Today, this weekend … take some extra time with your kids to talk about what’s on their minds.  I don’t care if they’re elementary school aged or all he way into their early adult years, give them an extra hug.  Make sure they know you care.  Even if they don’t like being grounded or your boring lectures, make sure they understand it’s because you love them and you always will.

And pray for these students and their families.
