9 INGREDIENTS FOR LOVING YOUR CHILD

1. Patience: Allow your child time to self-correct. Believe your child has the ability to practice self-discipline. Care enough to wait patiently for your child to welcome your love. Stay committed and endure all things with your child on their journey toward success.

2. Kindness: Be consistent with demonstrating your love in action. Consider the simple things that put a smile to your child’s face. Shower your child with respect and honor. Go out of your way to show your child just how valuable they are to you.

3. Generosity: Be willing to share your inner self with your child. Teach your child daily how to be free from meanness or smallness of mind. Release abundance into their life through your communication of words. Amplify your child’s ability to lead through generosity as a daily ritual.

4. Humility: The quality of being humble is giving yourself permission to go more than halfway to meet the needs and demands of your child. Use humility as a major theme in your home. A humble parent is not a denial of your worth as an individual. Rather, it is the tool that allows you build a strong and profitable relationship with your child.

5. Courtesy: Show politeness in attitude and behavior to your child. Use courtesy in your speech early in the morning and throughout the day with your child. Be creative in demonstrating random acts of kindness and favor performed with politeness on your journey of empowering your child toward greatness.

6. Unselfishness: The quality of not putting yourself first but willing to give your time and effort to strengthening your child’s emotional balance is the greatest gift of unselfishness to your child. Use unselfish devotion to guide your child with wisdom and skill.

7. Good Temper: A short-tempered parent communicates with their child through mental deficiency.   Mental deficiency is associated with lack of self-control, anger, strife, anxiety and a victim mindset. Good-tempered parents are calm and able to control personal anger.   The ability to negotiate, come in agreement, compromise and look for mutually beneficial solutions are clothing used by a good-tempered parent.

8. Morality: A parents standards of behavior or beliefs concerning what is wrong and what is not acceptable for the family is a critical and necessary ingredient in loving your child. Applying principles that allow your children to conform to the rules of right conduct is the responsibility of all parents. Morality is first taught in the home.

9. Sincerity: Being free from pretense, deceit or hypocrisy in raising your child must be unquestionable. Express your true feelings of love to your child in an honest way. Declutter every negative thought about your parenting style and replace them with thoughts that are loving, kind and true. Be sincere with yourself first so you can express sincerity freely to your child.   Being fake or pretending to care about your child is an unacceptable state of parenting.

USE LOVE TO BUILD UP YOUR CHILD

Can you feel the difference in energy when you communicate to your child with love? Can you feel the healing that takes place in your heart as you consciously use love as your foundation in asking your child to do something around the house?

Can you feel your inner peace growing as your child responds with respect to your outpouring of love? Can you feel the joy attached to your day after building up your child early in the morning?

Can you feel yourself embracing patience as you watch your child control their thoughts, emotions and behaviors? Can you feel the explosion in your heart of what happens to you when you use love to build up your child?

The only thing that matters in parenting is using love as a skill for building up your child toward success. Nothing in this lifetime can ever compare to the healing that takes place in a parent’s heart from communicating to their children with love.

Tearing your child down is not an option in parenting. Use love and watch the healing take over your heart.

TWO CHANNELS OF YOUR CHILD’S MIND

A child’s mind has two channels. The first channel is called the awareness channel. Your child’s ability to understanding the “WHY” of their behaviors, habits and emotions has the greatest impact on their ability to succeed in life. The second channel is called the unawareness channel.

Your child has a mindset for everything they experience. When a child is speaking low and stable, but their hands and legs are moving, there is contradiction happening in the 1st channel of the child’s mind. It is a sign of an incomplete thought between the first and second channel of the child’s mind, indicating an interior unresolved issue.

Movements of the static organs (shoulders), reflects contradiction happening in the 2nd channel of your child’s mind. When your child’s body and speech contradict each other it is a sign of self-deception (unaware).

Your child’s body language is a reflection of their internal world. Four out of your child’s five senses are located in their head. Only one of your child’s senses is located in the body. Your child’s body is an open book to understanding the two channels of their mind. Being an aware parent is critical to your child’s overall development.

Parents are encouraged to begin immediately with helping their children prepare an educational resource database that empowers them with being more informed about managing themselves more skillfully.

WHY DID YOU SAY THAT TO YOUR CHILD?

It’s not what you say to your child that matters, it’s why you said it that matters the most. What is really going on in your interior world that allowed you to speak to you child in such a way?

It’s not that your child did not listen, look closely at how it makes you feel. Correction begins with you first. Your child’s behavior should not move you out of your personal peace.

Take a moment to identify your true feelings that is being exposed by your child’s behavior. Where are your feelings coming from? Why do you feel the way you do? Is there something you are in denial about? Do you need someone to help with the pain you feel in your interior world?

Your child’s negative behavior is a cry for help with their interior world. Your negative response to your child’s behavior is a strong indicator you are carrying something in your interior world that needs healing.

The next time your child acts up, evaluate how you feel and then take note of the words you speak. Why do you say the things you do to your child?

Your words should elevate, inspire, educate, discipline and empower. Your interior world is a major component in parenting. Begin today to declutter and remove anything that limits your ability to be the best parent you can be.

STEPS 4 DEVELOPING YOUR CHILD’S VALUE STATEMENT

Your Children’s Values Statement

Values are unique to each individual and must be applied properly, regardless of arguments or negative reinforcement from the external world.

Values represent your child’s highest priority and the core reason for their behavior. Creating a values statement is one of the greatest gifts parents can give their children. Values typify the ethical and moral principles of your children’s comprehensive development.

The personal values of your children along with the values taught in the home, habitually build a bridge to form the dominant value system for the family.

The fundamental values in the home normally imitate the family’s degree of integrity.

Integrity is an essential component in developing your children’s values statement. The summation of integrity taught in the home, will set the tone for the amount of honesty and truthfulness displayed in your children’s behavior.

Parents’ are therefore a unique and significant source for establishing and cultivating an environment of success or failure for their children.

Children routinely receive values training from their parents. However, if a healthy values system is not in place at home; the environment will provide one for your children.

The ear piercing words children use to portray themselves and others is a direct aftermath of the values taught in the home.

Every decision your children make is connected to their personal values. Examples of other sources with the capability of teaching your children about values include: the television, friends, bullies, teachers, video games, counselors and the list goes on….

Routinely, values are formed with words parents associate with their children’s name. Many parents associate negative words such as: stupid, dumb, you’re always messing up, liar, can’t you do anything right, lazy, bad boy/girl, failure, and other demoralizing words to prepare their children for the day.

Parents are accountable, for filling up their children’s emotional bank accounts early in the mornings. When children begin their days with an overdrawn emotional state of mind, it diminishes all chances for success throughout the day.

Words are consequential in assisting children in the creation of their core value system.

The words parents communicate to their children, particularly in the early mornings, invariably sets the stage for the nature of day they will experience.

Associating your children’s name with encouraging and loving words is mandatory for their success.  A complied list of encouraging and loving words to speak early in the mornings to your children is available towards the end of the next page.

Early morning words directed at your children sets the atmosphere for success or failure. When children commence each day with a nagging parent, there is a high probability the rest of the child’s day will be negative.

When children start their day with parents using words of encouragement and empowerment, there is an inevitable possibility the rest of the child’s day will be successful.

Your children’s values influence their behavior and attitude towards themselves, their family, their teachers, and their friends.

Children need their parent’s assistance to establish a diversified values system in the home. Without a doubt, the numbers for children who need a value statement created to position them for limitless success are climbing by the second.

An authentic value statement that motivates children towards outstanding performance illustrates durability in the home.
