Best Advice For Farm & Ranch Moms

I recently asked all you farm and ranch mamas what is the best parenting advice you’ve ever received, and wow, did you guys deliver!
I wanted to share these words of encouragement with all of you, and I hope they helped you as much as they did me.
We all need a reminder once in awhile that while the task of parenting may seem daunting, it’s really the little things that have the biggest and most profound impact.

Here is your advice summed up into a list. Save this post for reference when you need a little extra encouragement!
- Above all else, raise them in church. Build their foundation on the rock, and make sure they know who Jesus is.
- Get them outside as often as possible.
- Responsibilities make great kids.
- Let them get dirty!
- Include them in everything, even if it takes a million times longer.
- Invest your time with your kids. You will never regret spending time with your kids.
- Always be kind, caring, and work hard. They will follow your lead.
- Bring them along for chores, and let them learn about agriculture from a very young age.
- Let them do dangerous things carefully.
- Let them be wild!
- Set the bar high, and they will rise to the expectation.
- Give them grace & have fun together.
- Prioritize family time & know the value of meals spent gathered around the dining room table.
What would you add to this list? I love hearing your advice!

  • As your children get older, spend as much time with them as you can. That way you will always know where they are, what they are doing and who they are with.
