Rule 1 -- Love Your Child

Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Yesterday I posted a list that I found searching the internet. This list was 13 Pagan Parenting Tips. But I felt that it just wasn't enough to leave it at that. I wanted to post my own thoughts on each of the items on the list.

Today I wanted to talk about something that is dear to my heart and that I have talked about to an extreme; Love.

I have met many parents that raise their children as a responsibility. All that they do is out of duty. Whether it is clothing, feeding or any other variety of things that parents do.

But in my house their is an overabundance of love. In fact my roommate has been known to say I hear 'I Love You' more in the last few weeks than I have in years. Yet saying I love you is not enough, it must be shown.

This is the true way to instill high self esteem in your children. Not sheltering them from all the harms and failures of the world. Another habit of bad parents. Children must learn from their mistakes and it is better that they do when they are young and their parents are around to help them recover.

So I know that if you are reading this that you are good parents. But when was the last time you decided to have a real conversation with your kid or kids? They are crying out for attention, make sure that they get the right kind of attention.

Blessed Be!
