It is a daunting
and difficult task and parents need all the help they can
get. When I began to be a parent I did not know how to do
it properly, especially because I was raised in an abusive
home. I wanted desperately to change and not pass on to my
children what I had experienced. I did all I could to change
and to learn how to give my children a happier life. Guide
4 Parents contains ten steps that I learned from my wife and
her parents, then working in a youth ranch. The physical abuse
I experienced was not the most devastating to me; it was the
lack of love. I was constantly told how worthless and stupid
I was and I never felt love or respect.
As I worked to change I began to recognize how important
love is for a child. It is the most important aspect of parenting
a parent can give to their child. Learning how to teach a
child is fought with many mistakes, yet a child will forgive
us, if they know and feel our unconditional love. My workbook
will teach you how to increase love even during discipline.
In fact that is its motto: how to increase love during discipline.
The story is told of a child who takes a lunch to her father
who is digging a well. As she gets to the well she cannot
see her father because it is dark. She calls to him and he
asks her to drop the lunch and he will catch it. Then he says,
"There is more here than I can eat, jump and I will catch
you and we can share the lunch." She jumps and shares
the lunch with her father. There are some important aspects
about being a parent that mimic this story. If the father
had not shown love to the point that the child completely
trusted him, she would not have jumped. Love builds trust
and fosters obedience and teachability. A child who does not
feel loved cannot be effectively taught. Every time the parent
who does not show love, then tries to teach or discipline,
the child will remember the lack of love and will be unlikely
to believe the parent.
Our prisons are full of people who as children were not loved.
As a youth I rebelled and did some things wrong just to test
my parents trying to get them to show me love. I have observed
youth in the youth ranch who disobeyed with the goal to find
love. Love is so powerful that it can change the most deviant
Guide 4 Parents contains ten steps with a workbook set of
questions that will give you the tools to help your child
feel and know you love them. Loving a child is of little value
if you do not know how to get them to believe you love them.
Most parents have love for their children, yet the child does
not feel loved because their parents do not know the right
tools to use.
I was not a prfect parent, yet using the ten steps in this
workbook made a difference for my children, and I know it
can do the same for you.
