Picture Portions

On the heels of our discussion on dyslexia the other day—two posts down—we got to talk more broadly about the mistakes we make when we don’t have the full picture.  I had shared with the kids my extreme frustration with Madi when she couldn’t read the word ‘the.’  (Since the telling of that story, I have heard both kids absently imitate a motor with my maniacal ‘the-the-the-the-the-the.’)

When we are dealing with a problem, but don’t have all the information, we can make matters so much worse!  It is important to follow the wisdom of James and be ‘quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger.’  It is just no good to jump in before doing all the research or getting all sides of a story.
