Tips for Raising Children…

March 15, 2008 — Leave a comment

  1. Every child I know who overcame long odds and grew into a responsible adult can point to an adult who stepped into his or her life as a friend, mentor, and guide.
  2. Don’t be too concerned that your children don’t listen to you. But be very concerned that they see everything you do.
  3. Be so consistent in your discipline that you’re boring.
  4. Stop arguing in front of your children.
  5. You may think children have outgrown the desire to be rocked to sleep at night. They haven’t.
  6. Children will never believe in the covenant of marriage unless they see you iving it with their own eyes.
  7. How do you know if a child needs encouragement? If he or she is breathing.
