You can empower your kids.
You can help your kids with building positve selfesteem.
Did you know you were already making a difference?
Did you know that just being here changes peoples lives?
As parents we make our decisions and we make our choices. But do we really know how important these choices are?
I have found a great quote from Wayne Dyer:
Love is the ability and willingness to allow those you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.
One of the truly great educators of our time, Haim Ginott, commenting on the powerful influence we have on children, said:
It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather….I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous.
I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized.
We need to influence and empower our kids not control them.
True obedience is a matter of love, which makes it voluntary, not by fear or force. —Dorothey Day, Peace Activist
Empowering our children involves first giving them a secure, safe, nurturing environment–
offering them unconditional love, caring and concern for their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Within this safe environment, children can begin to make choices and decisions and mistakes. They can learn to think for themselves.

If we only knew the cause and effect. If we knew how much control we really have.
How different would the world be if we all made our decisions with this thought in mind?
If we thought about the outcome, not only for ourselves but for every one. What a wonderful
world it would be.
We already have a wonderful world. How much better could it be?[ad_2]
