Family, Parenting & Kids

Families are a gift from God. Even better is a parent that raises their children to be responsible citizens. Remember, children learn mostly not by hearing but by watching. This said it is important we say and act right in front of our children. This is because there, is where all the character that child will assume comes from.

Children constantly need motivation, and it does a child good when they feel loved and needed. It is the role of parents to make sure this is done. Research has proved that most shy children and those that lack self esteem are as a result of lack of motivation and encouragement from parents. one of my favorite quotes that shows the importance of this approach in parenting is:-

“Affirming words from moms and dads are like light switches. Speak a word of affirmation at the right moment in a child’s life and it’s like lighting up a whole roomful of possibilities.”
– Gary Smalley
