"Out. You've got your kids to the point. Where you're asking the probing questions how do you then especially when it comes to conflict. How do you teach your kids to resolve conflict biblically okay. So we've already pretty much. We always want to start with heart probing questions because that's going to help them get past that our behavior figure out what is going on in the heart so with wesley aggravating alex. Wesley was my aggravated. Let me say this. And alex was my tattletale. God was so great with one of each and so But the way that. I taught them to resolve conflict biblically. Our goal is it. They can do it on their own. So and the way i accomplish. This is through the use of role playing. That's going to start teaching them how to do it on their own i. It's going to involve us helping them to do it. But role playing is a great way of teaching children how to resolve any kind of conflict because role playing is an extremely effective tool in training them how to put what they are what. They're learning what you're telling them into practice. When they put that knowledge gained into practice it actually becomes part of their lives. And that training's going to stick better when they learn how to use it in a hands on situation so just for the sake of time. Let's just Let me just give you a quick example of how i used role playing To teach my kids how to resolve conflict biblically and for the second time. I'm just going to stick to the same scenario that okay all right so. Although alex started out as the victim with the lion game with wesley chasing her through the house alex was still sinful. And how she responded. So let's go back to the same alex's being chased down the hall by the ferocious lion and she is screaming and crying. And here's where the tattletale part comes in as she leads. That lyon right to mama's feet. No you know what she's doing. And of course her voices amplified as of the other into the house and senate right in front of her and she screams at the top of her lungs. Wesley's being mean to me now. That was a very mild impression record. I told you very dramatic. It was usually a blood-curdling and an alex coming to me and screaming. that what. She's done there is she has become what the bible calls a tale bearer or as we say today a tattletale and it seems that she would very much like to see her brother in serious trouble. So i have wesley of already. Heart probed him with aggravating his sister so now i want heart probe her and then i'm gonna walk you through how to how to resolve it. Teach them how to resolve it biblically. You always want to start with a heart. Probing questions so alex's tattling this is going to help those moms out there listening to have the tattletale okay. so i would prob- her heart with something. Very simple like alex. honey have you asked your brother in private to stop chasing Did you try to work this out with him before you brought it to me and she says no and then i asked alex honey would you rejoice in seeing your brother get in trouble now. She looked as if she were considering that leaning towards the end of it. So i reminded her about proverbs. Seventeen five and all of these verses are in my wise words for chart okay. So it's not like you have to think of them on your own. They're already organized in that for you so i reminded her about proper seventeen. Five which is under the category of tattling and that burr says he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished now. Calamity is a big word and she was a little girl at this point so brace it in a way that she could understand outta said something like sweetheart. If you're delighting and getting your brother in trouble then you will get in trouble in an hour home. The tatler face the same consequences as the other child and so in here is where it. Here's what i'm talking about with. A role playing comes into play and this is going to teach them how to resolve conflict biblically rather than telling both of them what they should have done. And then just leaving it at that. I took it a step further. And i had both of them go and put that verbal training into practice. And let me just explain to you. How very very simple. This may sound complicated but it is so not. How very simple this is. I simply had both of the go back to the scene of the crime. Relying i began the and i actually put the words in alex's mouth. It's okay to do that. They're little they don't know how to communicate the right way. They don't know how to communicate with self control and so you can model that for them and actually give them the words to say and the tone to say it in if necessary and so i just this is how easy it is. I said alex. Tell wesley. please stop chasing me and growling at me. And she said please stop chasing me and growling at me. I said wesley. Tell your sister okay. And he said okay it. Is that saddle. It's not always easy to be consistent in implementing but it really is simple and it really doesn't take that much time to do that but by doing this by having them go back and do it the right way. What i'm doing there is. I'm training them in. What's right rather than just rebuking them for what is wrong. I'm teaching them to put off. Corrupt deceitful desires and to put on the holiness and the righteousness of god so all that decide no matter what the conflict is. Whether it's aggravating one. Another arguing tattling the key to teaching them how to resolve conflict. Biblically is to simply just walked them through how to do it. Yeah when we just say as parents things like which is wrong to do this and we say things like. Stop aggravating your sister. You're going to get it or go to your rooms until you can stop arguing. And don't think i haven't been guilty things. Because i have even though i knew better still was guilty of some of those things sometimes or or something like no tv tonight until you guys can get along better. Would we do that. We're not training and instructing. Yeah i corinthians. Thirteen five says that we're tinted. God always provides us with a way out. He always gives us a means of escape and so we want to do that with our kids. We don't want to just tell them what not to do. We want to give them that. Means of escape provide them with that way out by teaching them what to do so we went to walk them through what is right and require them to practice it and that's how we teach them to resolve conflict biblically. I love it. You wanna know. What my favorite thing about all of this. Ginger is that when we're raising our kids. They're only under a roof for such a short time. Eighteen years of their you know what eighty ninety years of their life or however long they live. It's a very short time. But that is the most important time the most critical time of training them for the rest of their life and in their marriages and in their relationship with their friends and their children and when we can train our children to think biblically to resolve conflict biblically to put on the full armor of god really as god causes to they take that into the rest of their adult life. And if you you know just just imagine how many marriages would succeed. How many hurt you know. How many less hearts would be broken. How strong we would be in our families if parents would take the time to train up their children in biblical righteousness. It would change everything right and so you know that the important thing about this is i think that moms so often thank you know. I see all these people doing all these other things. I see people speaking. I see people you know doing podcasts. And and you know whatever it is that they do serving and children's ministry and all i'm doing is i'm at home with my kids all day long and in dealing with my kids. I'm resolving conflict. I'm you know refereeing their fights. I'm changing diapers. I'm doing dishes and cooking meals. And i'm just a mom. I'm just a stay at home. Mom where's.

Unc and you can be successful. And i mean a lot of those guys you just mentioned re dowdy. Another one of those names It was such a unique group and they were all closed.

A colorado guy going to unc and then taking it to the next level and then playing at the highest level playing with guys like philip rivers and and then go into the buccaneers. of course. it's phenomenal.

Yeah now no question about it. Well said and yeah. It's it's tough. We don't want to jump too far over that but we're human and we read stories like that. We read anything worth a missing persons to wellness. Check those things. We start connecting the dots and fair or unfair. That's that's typically where the brain goes so we'll keep our eyes glued to that story. I know to see ultimately what happened But either way you wanna slice it. It's going to be. It is devastating..

"Right around the corner and let me just plug for you on the twenty third of April on Thursday we will have coverage of the NFL draft I will be teamed with Freddie Coleman after the first round of the draft will you will hear that right here on ESPN one thousand I believe so make sure that you check and also the next day on the twenty fourth a lot of coverage as well with the NFL draft how come on early at six o'clock or six to ten thirty will break down the NFL draft together so make sure that you're with us next week on Thursday and Friday as I review the first from the rapper Freddie Coleman from ESPN radio and then we'll be together trying to go with the bears gonna do in other topics second round and moving forward in the draft on Friday hope that you're with us here on ESPN one thousand three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone number we're talking about the positives are the pros and the cons when it comes to this bears roster I just wanna make sure that we're on the same page here if you see what I see if I'm wrong make sure you call me and tell me but right I kind of believe that after twelve and four year and then an eight eight season and how the team is not really going in the right direction as far as the leadership offense simply Alamy pace on some of the players on the field you might look at the bears going in the wrong direction but they try to pull the nose up by trying to solve the quarterback spot if you notice in the first second I do not talk about Trubisky at all then I talk about Nick Foles at all either there's a reason because I went to the pros of Allen Robinson and the defense of line the strongest part of the team and the linebackers in the inside linebackers and so the safeties I can also tell the running back in there as well they did a Montgomery another opportunity for him to actually run the football to get some momentum in the seas early and not in the middle of the season I think Montgomery can be a sturdy back for the bears so those are some of the pros among some of the pros and the cons now I'll start from the bottom I'll start with the kicking game are you sure that any Pinero is the right guy because here's what I I don't wanna go on a long tangent about I'm not going to go through this all the beer should have Robbie Goldhawk I'm Robbie gold still not here listen business is business I understand that you can part with the asset you can part with the player if you feel like you want to but if you're going to part with an asset the you make sure that you are improving on that asset get younger make it more productive whatever or as productive but when you're struggling in the kicking game if you have any Pinero who was hot toward the end I couldn't care less about that what you're about is someone consistent your job is to kick the ball through the uprights no excuses now I'm not feeling well all the stuff I don't hear it so the kicking game I think is a con on this team what do I do about this and again this is these are things that may or may not be addressed in the draft but the kicking game is very important that special teams is very important to me let's take a look also at the depth of the wide receivers right I'm Michelle Robinson and I got a problem L. Robinson as a wide receiver on this football team but now we're looking at the Z. spot with Riley Ridley who I don't have no idea whether that he can play at this level or not I watched my Georgia I know that he was are vital to the Georgia offense in college I just don't know how much time it's going to get I don't know what kind of player is going to be on this level but I like Riley Ridley when he was in college I have no idea what it looks like with the bears on a regular basis then at the other position you have Anthony Miller I like Miller but he's coming off another surgery it took until mid season last year to really get into a groove as I can fish being talked about on the athletic dot com okay I still think you can upgrade that position I don't like the depth of this receiving corps John Williams a special teams player again George guy right Jones Ron Williams is on special teams guy straight ahead runner that's not gonna work arm core okay general Patterson is a special teams player and I know they try to work him into some gadget plays and all that kind of stuff at me is fast but again not a guy that is a down in down out receiver that could be on the other side of Miller or on the side of Robinson then you have some of these other names like Reggie Davis Alex Wesley I mean they did upgrade this position in a draft by the way that is rich with wide receivers the look at that also I'm looking at the tight end spot so I'll ask you this question with this in the poll Sean at ESPN one thousand if you have ten wide receivers on your depth chart do you really have one so because Jimmy Graham and Trey Burton event brought occur and just before stated Eric suburbs in I DO in Clark in Dimitrius Heris GP holds Adam Shaheen dax Raymond if that's really your name dax Raymond there's a lot of tight ends on the depth chart in front of you right here but if you have ten Y. receipt do you have ten tight ends do you really have one tight end there's no need to go into the draft I mean embarrassingly they have all these tight ends right in you and I talked about Jimmy Graham we know he looks like he's toward the end he's not a blocking tight end nor is he productive tight end like he was years ago so why is he here because of familiarity because pace knows him Seoul if you have ten don't you think you should draft one because I don't see any difference maker on this roster from the tight end spot so I look at the office of lying to the something we talk about in season right especially when the quarterback gets sacked and we're like okay what's up with this offense of line you only know someone you start seeing that gate open on that offense of line okay what's going on here so what do you do it right guard this Afeni is our right guard on this team were shot powered and Corey the van all the right guard spot eight that right I mean the less they are satisfied with they haven't you need to upgrade that about left tackle where's the depth on the left tackle so Charles little junior is just one guy on the left tackle but what about the other guys there's nobody else at left tackle the need to upgrade that as well how about on the defense on the right corner now the defense is the strength of teams west of a line right so what about what about the right corner for this team so how full is on the left side and the right side is either already burns or Trey Roberson or Kevin Toliver no that won't work that's not gonna work so yeah look at that as well and of course the cherry on the sundae I went twenty four minutes and then we talk about it because you know the big story but I want to be able to really give you an idea of the cons of this football team before we get to the draft and that is the quarterback spot so here's what I'm gonna stop saying because this is something that has been a slow talking point in the story line for a long time in the city and that is someone in the media from like fifteen or twenty years ago look at Ron wolf the old general manager player personnel guy for the Green Bay Packers there was a time where the Packers would draft or bring in a quarterback every single year they mean a quarterback was the guy but they would always draft a quarterback that's a philosophy from years ago in Ryan pace said he would look into that right he's never done that Ryan pace not gonna do that but I think we have to stop talking about that because this whole thing of drafting a quarterback every year all is starting to sound like Shapiro's being hall of fame okay we've we've got to stop this in the city about drafting a quarterback every year until we actually see it it's a good suggestion don't get me wrong but clearly this general manager doesn't want to do that he feels strongly sol strong about Mitch Trubisky he brings in NYC falls from the side door that's how strongly feels on the Stravinsky and so when I look at the cons both of those guys from the my con side of this sheet in front of me I wrote my pros and the cons Mr Mishkin falls the reason why the tributes controls are part of the cons on this sheet of mine is because I don't know what to expect you can be the biggest risky fan if feel like tens gonna be able to find his way another year this offense and just he just needs for his receivers have to drop the football just needs time to throw the football or extra risky mentioned ever so slightly yeah I just need to get out of the pocket a little bit more okay cool cool rather pocket no dropped passes no sun your eyes and now what happens right I just know that there's some games and there was some money left on the table by Trubisky when the quarterback of this team and I'm just never going to be in this myopic view how some bears fans look as like well you know the coaching coaching him right now he's not being coached up well in yes it is another it is these these weapons so I don't know this guy stopped putting training wheels and high school expectations on pro players around here we got a look at it for what it is did you win or did you lose this offense would have did it lose more times than not the defense was holding up the offense and that has been the tradition of Chicago Bears football for way too long I just want balance and so on my cons a long with the depth chart for the wide receivers the tight ends in the offense of line in the kicking game in the right corner spot the quarterback is on the Contoocook I don't know what to expect Nick Foles might be the best backup quarterback in the history of the NFL but can he step in and start it leads the charge for the bears we also have to take a look at like this and I think it's I think it's very clear and that is that all these bandaids and that's what the R. because pets are banned dates of Jimmy Graham and Quinn in full screen RT burns and so these other guys.

"alex wesley" Discussed on NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks

"Make place makes them a dangerous weapon in your hall, man. And you know, you mentioned the basketball background his uncle's run. The Spanish national team the eighty eighty four Olympics. I mean, he he brings hoops to the field particularly in the end zone. Twenty eight total touchdowns for his career at Stanford. All state high school basketball. Yeah. Crazy. Yeah. Fun. Gotta watch down there in a red zone for. Sure. All right. Let's get to the slots here 'cause you can kind of make the argument there's two categories now for slots, right? There's the traditional slot. Maybe the Welker type. And then there's the big slot. Talked about those guys a little bit Cooper cups kind of in that conversation. Let's talk traditional slots to me describes DeVos Samuel. Oh it absolutely screams. He's built for it. He is a guy that basically when he has the ball in his hand. He runs around like running back yet. The speed the stop start quickness. The acceleration in bursts. He has all those things that would make him a terror in the slot. Yeah. And so. He booth. You know, you just trying to get him to let him work because he is also very tough to bring these mazes hand test player playmaker. I'll not love it. I mean, I think he'd be a great value slips up, you know, in a second round somewhere for for a team because he, you know, he's a guy catch the ball and win with it afterwards for sure any any other guys that fit that Bill for you, particularly. I mean, look, I think we talked about India's bell a lot. But he I mean, more the deep speed, right? This isn't what a speed is more the fascination with deep on this early dead. He's an amendola. Yeah. Walker type you just don't see guys that run fast vertically. Can I get out there over gentle situation? So it is interesting to see the buzz tied to him because he didn't WI wit at senior bowl. But in games hands a little bit of a question there as well. Right. You begin? So kinda take over. How about the big slots AJ Braun is got it stands. Out to me. But that's a big all of these big receivers. They we're talking about and cure, Harry AJ Brown. Someone else to jumps inside those two in particular. I think that could be terrific in the slut. Yeah. I was trying to figure out who else would. I'd like to see in the slot. Oh, our down. Did I would like to sleep? I would like to see Hakeem Butler work from the slot. He only works on the outside pretty much. I will say, but I would love to see him in the side just because of the size the length. He gives you basically a glorified tied in but with wide receiver attributes and so Perez. We could put in that gap. Paris campbell. This post up. Purse Campbell, certainly can jump and it's li-. He did it last season. But he's not a and he's more of what I call a playmaker. Get him the ball and let him go. And that's the we talked about this a little bit yesterday on path. I thought Curtis Conway mentioned it would kind of interesting off camera was like this. He's Alvin Kamara a little bit. You know, he doesn't have the high yards per reception like a decay Metcalf. Even though they have similar speed. He's more down at eleven. That's because you're getting him the ball closer to the line of scrimmage and let him go yet. Abobo screen is the nail rouse things that can let him touch it right away. Those that are things that you lean because you want him to showcase his exceptional running skills to create first downs and more. All right. I got another category for you. I like it big game player. Biggest plays in the biggest spots who rings that bell to meet Markey's rings, Bill Hollywood Hollywood Hollywood. I think is a big game plan. I know people will look at the last game that he played them when they lost. He was beat up a. Think without like the the hiccup without the injury. Yeah. I don't think that's the problem. I think his speed his explosiveness his Rodman ability very very similar to to Sean Jackson. He's just a dynamic player that you have to get the ball into his hands. And you want to get it to his hands. Give them a chance later in the game. When it's all on the line. Couple of guys I really loved as well. And I'm not sure what category they fit in right now. But they're there to my favorite guys. They're a little bit further down. We saw him at the senior bowl Keelan dos. UC Davis pop pop does peck. Yeah. What are we doing? I know we can't do that. Right. But he was a he was a fun guy to watch a mobile. Same thing for me with Alex Wesley northern Colorado. I thought he's really sudden at the top of his routes maybe a little bit stiff, but I mean thousand yard receiver back to back years in the Big Sky northern Colorado. And how about the the phone? Four hundred meter champ. Three times in the Big Sky. You're not going to run him out of gas. I mean, definitely definitely be tough to deal. So it's funny. You mentioned those guys. Yeah. There's it got it. I'm keeping my on Jalen hurt from having listed as well reason. I've keep my own him is because this guy was a very accomplished running back. There are people that fill like at some point. He was going to be a first round pick top running back. It's coming out. Yeah. He Desai's to remake himself. Yeah. Two years. He comes back. Does a great job putting up numbers? Yeah. Production. I can see a world where someone is like wait a minute you play tiny. And oh, it just brings about a new set of problems. They create with a gala debt on the few. Yeah. Tennessee to Baylor for heard. I mean that was a really interesting story about him on NFL dot com on the back to campus series. So check that out. I think a guy we both love Terry MacLaurin out of Ohio State. The blue-collar player got come in and contribute special team. But also as a candidate to be third or fourth wide receiver liked him. Love the speed loved feted. He's going to be a player somewhere somehow for for a team. No question. All right. I didn't get my big game player in the hundred fro look I mean, the biggest spots east is going to be there for you. I don't know where he's going to end up. But I feel like he's gonna stick around. All right. Here's one that's a little bit off the radar. And

"Like that. That's that's a problem. Yeah. Yeah. I looked at. It's something that we hold whole heal up. And we kind of know Mark Brown was going to run really well to combine. So we we you turn on the tape, and you know. Watch one game with Mark Brown say, yeah, this guy's fast. Yeah. They gotta keep an eye on the injured make sure that the rehabs going, okay. And that'll be back to full speed in the summer, but not something that is going to crush his draft stock in my opinion or anything. We'll see if it does. But you know, I think when you look at Markey's Brown, you kind of have an idea picturing your mind, the kind of receiver that he can be. I think he's he's his upside is as high as any of these guys I mean, he's an outstanding route runner, he's explosive. He's really smooth in and out of breaks. He's contract the ball down the field. He was really impressive on film. Now, he was my pick for workout warrior in that piece last week. So with him not working out. Now, I'm looking right. Who who are the guys that can stand up, and I did list a few players that I thought would test well across the board certainly pass Campbell from Ohio State, probably probably could have been the guy I would have gone with if not it would have been Mykola Hartman from Georgia. I think those two guys really are going to light up the track. Terms of how they run and how they test in the shuttles and how the end the jumps and things like that. We've seen so reported numbers from Paris Campbell in the past. And if those hold up he'll be one of the best testers at this event. And I quote Murray from Florida state certainly a player to keep an eye on. I was really impressed with the juice that he showed on filled. Darius Slayton from auburn's and other guy who can fly your question. I can he be a little bit more well rounded, but if you're looking for a receiver that can run Daria Slayton from Auburn certainly can bring that Emmanuel hall, probably a little bit further along I would say, then Slayton is I hall to me was one of the best seniors in the country at the wide receiver position this year, really explosive kin those all those guys were talking about from the SEC Deontay Johnson from Toledo has generated a lot of buzz. He was a big time return guy in the MAC there for Toledo, Alex Wesley northern Carolina, Colorado, I've talked about in the past guy that I think can work vertically really good vertical route runner, and then really we're going to dig into small small school. Let's go de to. Let's go to Malone. Sean Malone university was shutting down there football program. Now, this was the last year for them Ashton Doolan from Malone three year starter there, actually, led the entire country all levels of competition in all purpose yards per game at the wide receiver position. So you're talking return yards as well. He ran hurdles at milona was a big time track guy coming out of high school. So this is a guy that if you're looking for someone off the radar to kind of come in and run four three nine and run four four one. Keep an eye on Ashton Doolan from Malone. I would just say. At the wide receiver position. You know? It's interesting that what you said about Malone for sure. That's shame that they're losing their program. I also think I want to move onto the tight end position because I'm just sitting here thinking is it fair to say friend that the tight end positions is the best of the offensive skill positions in this year's draft. I see I think the receiver position has a lot of talent..

"Mm spouse himself on special teams because that's a big part of it as well. If he can do those things I think that he's got to believe to be drafted a lot earlier than some people think potentially as early as round three. The south running backs Reich. Well, Armstead Wesley hills, Bruce Anderson and Trevan west go, and I think Anderson is getting a little bit of buzz coming in was very productive player for the bison and North Dakota state coming off their championship run. But to me, I think you look at Rockwell Armstead from temple. He's got a lot of tools that you can work with you know, he's a bigger back. He's a fiscal downhill guy. I do like his vision and his patients he works well zone run game. He's also got some quickness to them the big thing with him is that he just hasn't been able to consistently stay healthy. And it's not it hasn't been anything serious Ross. It's just been little injuries here and there where he's just kind of been dinged up. And that's just something that he's got to work through in gen true that he can be more durable. The only way to do that is to try and save you can get through this entire process without in the issues. But on Phil I think he's got pretty good film. Overall. Taking a look at the wide receivers on the north team Keelan dos. Alex, Wesley, Jalen. Smith penny. Heart Terry MacLaurin and Jacoby Myers. Yeah. And I think the. The three best. I would say the three of the four. Three of the four best players to be the small school guys. You know, you look at Keelan dos from UC Davis. I mean, he's worried we'll find out fischel numbers here today. But I think he was listed around six two and change two hundred pounds. He's a good size kid, but he moves well and he plays the ball. Really, really? Well in the air. He was very productive for them. He's a very interesting player. I had a chance to study him for the first time over the weekend. And I get with all the buzz about he's a very intriguing player with his combination of size and movement. Alex wesley. We've talked about before from northern Colorado guys speed guy. I mean, he can work vertically. But he also has a pretty good route. Right. I honestly I haven't talked enough about Alex Wesley coming into this week and all the other things that I've done because to me he could be the guy that really really helps himself because small school guy showing up that he can prove that he could show up here and create separation himself and run by people. I think that could play really well outs Wesley. Really impressed me on tape. Keep it rolling friend talking about the south receivers deebo Samuel, man. We've talked a lot about him Tyree. Brady, we've talked a lot about because I saw him hunter Renfro, David sills. You did a great story on David sills that you wrote Anthony buffalo self interesting Travis full them and Gary Jennings. A lot of people in buffalo going to be surprised that they're in the south. Yes, they do that. Because you know, they're trying to spread the town out evenly. And then also he's from I believe he's from Florida a little try and justify it that way with our main goal is to make sure that there's an even amount of talent on both sides from my is Ross the three best receivers here in terms of how they can play right now are on this roster. The depot Samuel Andy Isabella from UMass entire Brady from Marshall on all three of them win in different ways. Samuel. I love after the catch is probably the best overall receiver here in my eyes Isabella is both fast and quick. He's pretty crafty route runner he's good at the catch. Point to me. He could we could be a walking away this week thing saying like man is any Isabella's going to go first or second round and Tyree. Brady. I've said before he kinda reminds me of alshon Jeffery watching Shawn up close the last couple of years seeing what he can do Tyree Brady has a lot of those same qualities. Let's get to the tight ends. Then the north Andrew sample, Tommy Sweeney and Donald Parham. Yes..
