I loved how you handled the situation. Your family did a great job. I want to know how you knew how to keep calm in those situations? I was very impressed that the teenagers from England had matured so much in just the time they were with your family. Seeing your family have to say good-bye broke my heart. Especially seeing your little 5 yr old cry. It tore my heart out. God bless you all.

That was awesome. I was very impressed with how you, your family and friends all stuck to their guns in every situation. That was a great example of how a family should act and chidren should be raised.

Thank you so much for sharing your family with us all.

Machelle,

Thanks for your comment! You are right calmness is key to good parenting. I think I am going to do a class on clamness and how to get yourself there. This might be of general interest to all. I will just say, the parent who confindently governs herself and follows a plan is able to trust herself enough to stay calm.

Many Thanks,

Nicholeen

Dear Nicholeen,

I think a class on calmness is a great idea. I do have a book called "The Soft-Spoken Parent" that also helped me personally. I also notice for myself personally that the times I struggle are: when the clock is ticking,fatigue, anxiety, and when my blood sugar is low- I tend to not be as calm so perhaps there are some physical factors to be aware of as well as overcoming some emotional habits.

Sincerely,

Cassandra

I watched all of the segments and just want to say thank you for your wisdom and grace. I want to have that peace and calm in my home. I loved how your son said that he had been trying to push your buttons for years and that it never works. I asked my husband tonight if he would do an experiment with me and when the kids get upset and start yelling, to get calmer and quieter ourselves and not let any of their emotion effect us negatively. I have been trying to teach my kids not to let so many little things upset them, but I realize that it doesn't matter how many times I say it if I don't master that in myself first. I would be very interested in a class on that! Thank you for your inspiring life and message...

This was fun to watch- especially since Cash is my nephew. We didn't know he was in this. It inspires me to work on being more calm as a parent. It reminds me of how important things are. Thank you

Saskia,

I love Cash and his family! They are really amazing people and very inspiring to associate with. This whole experience could prove to be a real life changer for Cash. I am happy he got the opportunity to share good morals with the world. Teens in England are now coming to him for advice on how to change their lives for good. I am so proud of him!

Thanks for dropping a line.

Nicholeen, you were amazing! I have finally learned to parent my young children but I would be scared to death to try it with teens, especially with those kinds of problems. Keep up the good work!

Nicholeen your amazing and what a refresher. I have listened to all your tapes and incoporated alot of your teachings in my family, but life does move on and this helped me so much to straighten my course and get focused stronger. Keep us going.

I just finished watching the show and I am so moved. Thanks for putting your family out there like that, I am sure it was hard at times, but what a beautiful thing you did for those poor children. I was struck by two things regarding the teenagers, they are both from broken homes with no fathers and how they seemed to be crying out for acceptance. Interesting.

Dear Peck Family,

What an amazing family and what great work you have done. My heart goes out to Hannah and James as they seem so lost....whereas your family is so united and loving. Cash was amazing! If only Hannah could figure out that someday she could have someone as wonderful as Cash to be with instead of the guys who use her. Your children have great voices and it was delightful to hear them sing....each time it made me smile through my tears. You all are so richly blessed....and so are we to have been able to "visit" you in your loving home.

I am so happy that you put yourself out there s for the whole world to see. I also home school. I try to TJed and after watching these segments I have been inspired to try harder with my own family. I know that little things can make a difference and especially with God as our partner. You really have an awesome family. Thank you for making a difference is so many lives through sharing what you believe.

Great show! I'm curious: did James and Hanna attend Church with you? If so, what was their reaction?

Jennifer Harding's picture

I was wondering....what do you do about name calling, or when children say bad words? My children say crap, stupid, dumb, etc... No matter how many times I tell them to stop, they don't. So would you have them do a chore everytime they named called, or said a bad word? or Would you do something different?

Barbara McConochie's picture

I am amazed at all of you-- your children for embracing them despite such differences, your husband's calm manner, James and Hannah for their willingness to try the experiment and let go of some self-defeating attitudes, and you Nicholeen for your genuine care and skills in nurturing. Wow! I shed tears at the end. I'll remember this for a long time.

I caught a re-run of this show the other night and I have to say, I found it incredibly moving. Your family is an inspiration to those who want to make life better for those around them and do right in the world and I have no doubt that the love you all showed those two troubled children will endure in their hearts and minds for many years to come, if not their entire lives. Thank you for reaffirming my faith in the goodness of people.
