Parents will understand the best way to
build self-esteem is by sending a constant message of love. If parents
are truly wishing for their children to make really good decisions when
presented with the big decisions in their lives, making sure that they
know they are unconditionally loved is the key!
Parents will understand that simply loving
our children is not enough. We must express that love daily in a variety
of ways. This course outlines ten behaviorally described ways to
communicate love to children.
Parents will learn to use the “ten ways to
share their love” with their kids as a daily exercise.
Parents will learn that an expression of love is a wonderful substitute for their angry and frustrated feelings.
People will not know you love them unless
you tell them… constantly.
LOVE is not just something you say; it is
something you do. (That does not mean that a parent is relieved of
saying the words. You must say the words but that also is not enough!
You must live it!)
The time our kids most need to hear a message of love is precisely when we feel least able to send it. It is at that time that their hearts are most open to accept the message!
Send a message of LOVE
