Grandparent pointers for parents:
Feel free to add your own to my list. I have 4 points to make. (actually more).
- Praise your kids as often as you can.. count how many times you criticize them, praise should be at least 4:1
- Hug them a lot. Sure they’ll think your nuts, but go ahead. Especially after they’ve been bad acting.
- Tell them you love them, verbally, everyday and a lot. Especially after they’ve been bad acting. (They aren’t bad, just bad actions sometimes.)
- Do you really have to say “NO” before you actually consider what they are asking for? Somethings don’t matter, pay attention and say “YES” to those more often.
A kids childhood is fleeting, like a vapor. Either do it right today or tomorrow you’ll wake up sorry, and there are no “do-overs” with your kids.
Just sayin….Bro. Nick
