Ten things that all children need

Tuesday, 29 May 2012

Love
It develops self esteem, self-confidence, self-worth and the ability to love others.

Time & Attention
Quality time, at least a little every day.

Encouragement & Affirmation
Children need to know their parents are proud of them.
A single word of encouragement can change their entire life.

Stability
A stable home, where children know their place, whom to trust, and who is going to be there for them.

Opportunity
Kids need opportunity to find out their interests, and to find out what they excel in.
Contrary to popular belief, this does not need much money.

Discipline
Kids need to learn everything from the ground up, including appropriate behaviour, how to get along with others, how to get results and achieve their dreams. Discipline should be consistent and positive.

Laughter
Laughter is necessary for a child's mental and physical health. Encourage joy and laughter.

Your Lap
It is the best place in the entire world to read a book, to tell a story, and have a conversation.

Room To Make Mistakes
Kids are kids. This is what makes them so much fun, and in desperate need of your patience.
Give them room to experiment, explore and make mistakes.

Hugs & Kisses
As many, as often as possible!
