Falling In Love with your Kids

Let me share to you the "Nine Basic  Ingredients for Falling In Love with your KIDS" by Stephanie Marston and my take on each of them..

1.  Spend Time Together -  That's one thing that we want the kids  to remember when we are gone, the quality times that we spent together as a family.
2.  Develop Common Interests  - The four of us  love outdoors so we are always  into exploring  everything around us every chance we get..
3.  Play Together. -  I am glad we have lots of time to play together.
4.  Touch each other. - We always tell  our kids how important it is  to show each other  our affection, holding hands and hugging are just some of them..
5.  Treat your KIDS as if they are the most important  people in the world - It's a big thing for them to be acknowledged that they are important, that they are the main focus of your world.
6.  Celebrate the uniqueness. -  Each of our kids have different likes and interests and we try not to  compare them but rather support and love their uniqueness.
7.  Tell your children often that you love them.  - We make sure that we tell them how much we love  them, it is an assurance that we will be there for them - rain or shine -.
8.  Talk Together - Our kids are  only 6 and 4 years old but whenever hubby and I are planning for something, we always include them in the discussion.  You will never know  what they can contribute and what their opinions are if you don't ask them.  Their inputs  are very important to us, its one of the many ways you can teach your kids about decision making.
9.  Create Lasting Memories - This is what we do every day.  You might think that  children won't remember every little thing that you do with them, but they will.  I still remember  things that my parents and I did when I was a kid.
Real success is finding your lifework in the work that you love.

These 'rules' are wonderful, and so true! Ours may be 22 and 20 now, but we always had dinner together, always conversed with and listened to ours - the time together always special. A testament to the parents - or the children. Lovely post!

...and they grow up and leave all too quickly. Dear me, I have grandsons that are in their 20s and teens already!! Where does the time go? You've captured some wonderful photos along with great shadows.

That is such a lovely post. I don't have children but I do teach young children and I think all of this applies. Your kids and you and your hubby make a lovely family!

Mel Alarilla said...

Yes, your family relationship is very ideal. You and John have done great with your family and your kids are responding positively to that. I have no doubt that your kids will grow up to be responsible individuals and later on, very responsible parents too. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
