Unscramble the Blue Letters

You know what else I thought as a stay-at-home praent? I though I knew that the best way to teach kids right from wrong was to discipline them, because that would make sure they usdnotreod right from wrong, the pain, the fear — that would teach them. But the truth is, the best way to teach my children right from wrong is to teach them. Take out a whiteboard and draw pcutreis and make ccnnotoiens that they can understand. That was the best way. A lot of these images you're seeing are coming from my YouTube channel, "Beleaf in forheatohd." I document the misadventures of being a stay-at-home dad. And it's not perfect, it's just sionhwg that I'm trying. And I'm not trying to be an example but just proof that it's possible for whoever else is doing this. You know what I also knew about being a stay-at-home parent? I knew that children needed love, but I just didn't know what love looked like.
