Parenting Tips

I don't know any of my own tips in child raising so I will use what I have learned from others. Daryl Hoole gives this advice in her book, "The Ultimate Calling, The Art of Homemaking for Today."

Love Them. "The measure of love is to love without measure" (Anonymous).
Like Them. Appreciate whatever is noble in your children.
Listen to Them. Listen to and understand your children.
"Communication is really important in our house. I think one of the reasons why each of our 7 children feels so free to talk to their father and me is that we really listen to them. We give them our full attention as they talk, and we listen to understand, rather than to judge or preach. Therefore they are receptive to our counsel when we offer it." -Daryl Hoole
