Raising children with love, patience, and understanding
Raising Children with love. Are you raising young children or grandchildren? Do you sometimes feel that you are not getting through to them? Are you losing patience and/or raising your voice too often?
Martha Stevens has written a wonderful book on educating children to mind and be well behaved because THEY want to. It is reasonably priced, but the information is priceless. Read more about it here.
P.S. This is an affiliate site, but her book is so good, we have to share and offer it to our visitors.
Raising Children with Love
Would you agree that the future belongs to our children?
How we raise children will make all the difference.
Being a single parent most of my life, keeping a roof over our heads and food on the table were the primary concerns of the day. Sitting around and listening to them "talk story" about the good old days, brings it home that somehow they were never aware that we were struggling.
That's a good thing.
Raising them in Hawaii in the 60's and 70's made it easier still. Packing up after school on Friday and camping at the beach until Sunday was an inexpensive way to keep them busy and under my watchful eye.
It made doing chores and homework during the week a "no-brainer". If the weekend was going to be free to play, then everything had to be done in a timely manner.
All five of them have grown to be fine, productive adults with families of their own. When I watch them with their own children, I feel very content, because I can see that they, too, are raising their children with love.
Most of my granchildren are good students and very involved in sports.
Little Kayci is an exception. She has cerebral palsy, but a sweeter, more loving child would be hard to find.

She writes with love, caring and an insight into young hearts. Raising children with love is a satisfying and rewarding endeavor.
