When you think about raising your children today, you can think about all these parts of your life. Find your appetite in life, be a good parent and be kind to yourself too!
Eating is survival. If you diligently try to have at least one meal together as a family daily, chances are very good you will be able to increase your communication with your children, especially teenagers, and build a stronger family union.
Prayer is different to all people. No matter what your religious beliefs are, to be passionate about your family, your children and your life is to bring positive affirmations into your day. Whether it is considered praying or simply meditating, it is time for you to take for yourself to have a better life.
Love. What a simple yet complex four-letter word. We all love our children, and yes, even our teenagers, however it doesn’t mean we have to like what they are doing or how they are acting. In the old movie, Love Story, many remember that love is never having to say you are sorry. Is that still true?
Parenting includes eating, praying and lots of loving! When you are having a really bad day and believe you are hitting your wit’s end, take the time to stop, breathe and remember, you are blessed.
Happy Independence Day!
