When Children Feel Loved, You’re Successful.
By Jan Wilson

While it is true that a parent’s job is to socialize their children, pick on a few things at a time.

Decide what is important to you and the children’s future, and pursue those three or four items consistently. Let other, less important, problems slide until another time.

 

Decide what is important and let other items go.

Get up a little early on Sunday morning.

Let it be an unspoken rule that anything can be talked about at that time without Mom or Dad launching into a lecture or falling off the couch in shock. Give your children that time to discuss anything that is worrying them.

Realize that there will be many times that are less-than-perfect There is no reason to feel guilty about those times. If children feel loved, they can take tense times in stride.

In fact, if your children feel loved, you are a success as a parent!
