I wished I had been able to read a book such as this when I was raising my own children and stepchildren! I think I would have been more empathetic mother and stepmother! As a grandmother I have watched my daughter use the philosophy of Love and Logic by Foster Cline and Jim Fay, where my grandchildren were given the opportunity to utilize choices by choosing what they wanted! Instead of using the word no, my daughter said, “Uh-oh!” and it seemed my grandchildren were conditioned enough to stop what they were doing long enough to be redirected! This was amazing to me, and I also followed this discipline philosophy to be consistent!
This book was written in hopes that as a parent, you can learn techniques and strategies to discipline your children firmly, fairly, and consistently with Christina’s values because every child put on earth is surely a blessing from God!
What does it take to become a parent...usually little more than a few moments of pleasure? Which education system prepares us for our role as parents? I believe that being a Mom or a Dad is THE most important career assignment we will ever be given and yet we receive little or no preparation for this life-long task.
In the past, parents produced many children in order to compliment their challenging work load. Today however, most parents would like to give their children more than what they themselves have had; they also want them to have a happy and comfortable childhood and then they envision success, fulfillment and happiness for their offspring in their adult lives.
Have you thought of how you would go about assisting your child to achieve these milestones of life?
The Gifts you can Afford to give your Children offers some thoughts on subjects such as:
The Gift of Creativity how to help your child find the creativity within himself;
The Gift of Honesty and Integrity the value of living a truth-filled life;
The Gift of Humour finding and enjoying the lighter side of life together as a family;
The Gift of Self-worth and Confidence
It also looks at finding the Light within ourselves and our children the gentle vibration within every living cell in our Universe.
It proposes a deeper, more satisfying and creative approach to raising childrena conscious and thoughtful way of exploring parenthood.
