Love Conquers All

My head was brimming over with ideas, yet I couldn’t actually shape them and round them up into a post because I am nursing a head cold right now. So I did the next best thing. I called The Force. I asked my son – if he had to write a parenting post, what would be the first thing that came to mind? And pat came the answer, as if he was waiting for me to ask him.

“How about when parents need to convey something… they need not be harsh. If they say it “lovingly” things can get done so much more easily.”

I asked, “Can you elaborate?”

He said, “Yes. Often, older people assume that they must raise their voices to get things done or give advice. We are happier to listen when it comes as normal conversation.   If reasonable there’s no reason why we would even rebel. Sometimes we can’t even understand why you get angry!”

To read the rest of this post, please head over to ParentousI’d love to know what you think!

    I think that is completely true. We were always yelled at and not talked to. When we were talked respectively we did more and listened.
    I hope you feel better soon xo

      Yes, Carolyn. Makes me more conscious about what I project. Because I am rewarded in such a wonderful way!
