I am reading a little book( 56 pages) called "If I were Starting My Family Again" by John M. Drescher. And you know I am going to have to share the highlights! So here they are
1 The greatest thing a mother and a father can do for their children is to love their spouse because when a child knows it's parent love each other, that child experiences security, stability, and a sacredness about life that it can gain in no other way. On the other side, children who live with conflict, or in the suspicion that their parents do not love each other, develop ulcers and upset stomachs. "NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR THE FUTURE WELL-BEING OF PARENT OR CHILD THAN THE DEEP, ABILING, VISIBLE LOVE OF FATHER AND MOTHER FOR EACH OTHER."
2 "The best way to make children good is to make them happy. Never fear spoiling children by making them happy, We need to laugh more and with our children. We need to laugh more at ourselves, our mistakes and our failures. So many of the tensions of life, particularly in our families, arise because we take ourselves so seriously. Than we can be hurt to easily." " If the important things of life are experienced by our children in an atmosphere of joy, they will not be as easily drawn to the thin pleasures and suggestions for happiness that are offered so freely by our society."
3 We need to become better listener, If we listen to our children when they young, they will listen to us when they are teens.
4 We should be more honest.
5 I think this one surprises me the most, We should pray more for ourselves that our relationships and attitudes might be right. Things seem to happen when we want God to change us more than we want God to change other people. We are to pray for others too but in a different way.
Chapter 5 is a real eye opener for me!
6 Spend time TOGETHER. Times together, not things done alone are what is remember. " A sense of security, of love, of understanding, and of communication depends upon a feeling of togetherness. When a sense of sharing and togetherness is absent , a feeling of aloneness, strangeness, and lack of love is present.
7 Do more encouraging. Probably no other thing encourages children to love life, to seek accomplishment. and to gain confidence, more than sincere praise- not flattery- but honest compliments when they have done well.
love this quote by Longfellow "A torn jacket is soon mended, but hard words bruise the heart of a child".
8 Be BIG IN LITTLE THINGS
9 DEVELP FEELINGS OF BELONGING. WHEN CHILDREN SENSE THEY BELONG to the family they have a security that nothing else can give.
10 Share God more intimately and more intentionally.
I encouraged all father and mothers and grandparents and aunts and etc to read this book and apply the truths to their lives.
We all can learn from this book even if we don't have children, we all want love and acceptance,
The book was written mostly for males but women need to read it too
