Parenting is a big challenge for us all. And it’s not getting easier these days with the enormous outside influences that kids are exposed to today. But really, not all that much has changed!
We can not teach our children everything, many experiences will have to be made by themselves and we can not protect them from all evil in the world. Our job is only to help them build a solid foundation and life philosophy that will carry them through the ups and downs of life. John Gray a parent and communications expert has develped a system that will help you achieve this. John, completing the notion that Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, he adds
…and Children are from Heaven
In his audiobook ‘Children are from Heaven’ John Gray says that the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again are these:
- It’s okay to be different.
- It’s okay to make mistakes.
- It’s okay to express negative emotions.
- It’s okay to want more.
- It’s okay to say no, but remember Mom and Dad are the bosses.
When these messages are put into practice — and John Gray shows you how — your children will develop the necessary skills for successful living:
- forgiveness of others and themselves
- delayed gratification
- respect for others and themselves
- the ability to be happy.
By applying the five messages and different skills of positive parenting, your children will recieve what they need to become more cooperative, confident, and compassionate children.
