Parenting Tips

Simply having children does not make mothers. - John A. Shedd

The best thing to spend on your children is your time. "Your children need your presence more than your presents." - Jesse Jackson

Correcting children and employees helps. Complimenting them helps more. "If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others." - Haim Ginott

Children are natural mimics who act like their parents despite every effort to teach them good manners.

"Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you." - Robert Fulghum

Oh they definitely listen, you've just got to be careful, because the times they'll show you this, it's something you really didn't want them to listen to and take to heart.

"But mummy, you said that Auntie Hilary is a huge bore, and if she invited herself around again, you would go insane"

Or something like that :)

After four children I have learned a few things about children. Number one: Children are a gift from God; they are His reward. (Psalms) It seems so easy to find truth and innocense in the hearts of children. Thank you Jesus for all of the children.

Hi Kerry,

Me too have four children.

Initially, I thought two boys were enough. However, God gave me four boys, the last being a twin. Indeed, it is a blessing from God. Anyway, having children means we must learn to be a good parent following his example (our Heavenly Father). The future generation depends a great deal on how we educate our children.
