Children imitate what they see
and what they hear
Children need, to feel and see love and consideration at home. Daddy often said, “You kids get up and get it; your legs are younger than Mama‘s.” We recognized this as consideration for Mama. Children need the example of Dad, opening the door for Mom, of everyone getting up to carry in groceries (these are not Mom‘s groceries —kids help eat them).
“You can do it!’
“I believe in you.”
‘I know you‘ll tell me the truth.”
And children desperately need discipline that says to the child, “I care about you and what you do.” Children need to feel the power of loving touches —to see Grandmother‘s faith handed down to another generation. Most important of all points, children need to see Christ living in me.
