Parents and Children

Parents should be held responsible and accountable for how they raise their kids. Moms and Dads may decide to raise their kids in the ways that God wants to raise them in or parents can choose to raise their kids in the ways the world wants to raise them.

I encourage parents to choose to raise their kids in the ways that God wants to raise them in and not the ways the world wants to raise them in.

On my refrigerator there is a one-page poster (child-rearing anthem) that is titled Children Learn What They Live by Dorothy Nolte. Here is what it says below.

CHILDREN LEARN WHAT THEY LIVE

If a child lives with criticism, He learns to condemn.

If a child lives with hostility, He learns to fight.

If a child lives with ridicule, He learns to be shy.

If a child lives with shame, He learns to feel guilty.

If a child lives with tolerance, He learns to be patient.

If a child lives with encouragement, He learns confidence.

If a child lives with praise, He learns to appreciate.

If a child lives with fairness, He learns justice.

If a child lives with security, He learns to have faith.

If a child lives with approval, He learns to like himself.

If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, He learns to find love in the world.

Dorothy Law Nolte also wrote a book called Teenagers Learn What They Live. Here is a website that contains the chapter titles in the book. http://principal.ccsc.edu.hk/parents/teens/teenagers.html

Conservative Daily News allows a great deal of latitude in the topics contributors choose and their approaches to the content. This is due to our approach that citizens have a voice, not only the mass media. Readers will likely not agree with every contributor or every post, but find reasons to think about the topic and respond with comments. We value differing opinions as well as those that agree. Opinions of contributors are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of CDN, Anomalous Media or staff. Click here if you'd like to write for CDN.
