UNDERSTANDING YOUR CHILD’S VALUE

Understanding your child’s value to the family and the community is fundamental for their development.  Children need to feel connected to their family and their community.  Children perform best in an atmosphere where they are valued.

Children who destroy their environment, abuse themselves and others are crying out to be valued.  Children need to be included in the family purpose and vision.  They  desire to participate in family missions that improve their community and the world.  Children need guidance and direction of the correct family values to use at school, with their friends and others.

A child’s value define their behavior and how they treat themselves and others.  The standard of behavior acceptable in the home is the foundation for strengthening or destroying your child’s personal development.

Make an effort to catch your child doing something right.  Use this opportunity at your next family meeting to express your appreciation of the correct demonstration of a positive behavior.  Expressing your gratitude openly is an excellent parenting tool for adding value to your child.

STRUCTURED PARENTING

The greatest challenge parents will experience with their children is hidden in the structure established in the home.  The role of parenting is not an experiment.  The key to structured parenting is balancing family values, accountability and rewards.

Family values are important and can be beneficial when establishing principles for improving unacceptable behaviors in the home.  Clear and specific family values are core elements of structured parenting.  Every decision a child makes is connected to the dominated values taught in the home.

Taking responsibility for your actions and reflecting back to your children the importance of accountability is essential in the establishment of structured parenting.   Accountability is an attitude children look for with excitement  and respect in their parent’s.

Rewards are one of the most powerful parenting tools parents can use to encourage positive behaviors or to correct negative behaviors. Rewards such as movie night with mom or dad or a letter of acknowledgement about your child’s value to the family are meaningful rewards that stimulate and inspires children toward excellence.

DISCOVERING YOUR CHILD’S POTENTIAL

Do you recognize your child’s potential? Or do you feel hopeless regarding your child?  Are you assisting your child confidently with his/her awareness for growth and development? Or do you feel like you are heading no where, without a plan or a purpose for parenting your child effectively?

Seeking out innovative parenting tools for identifying your child’s capabilities and latent excellence is one of the greatest resource parents can add immediately to their toolkit for maximizing their children’s potential.  Children are full of hidden potential and parents will need to practice patience, self-control and diagnostic questions strategically for uncovering those potentials.

Discovering your child’s potential is a skill in self-mastery.  Recognizing your own potential as a parent and aligning with your purpose, your vision, your mission and your values are essential for achieving this goal.  Knowing internally that you are a parent of value and that you are more than equipped for this job is the most incredible and powerful connection you will need for identifying your child’s potential.

Guiding your child with praise and encouragement are excellent tools for joining them on the journey of discovering their potential for greatness.  Learning how to relate, connect and listen attentively to your child’s questions are also very important during the discovery process.

Limited vision and self-defeating beliefs will be the greatest challenge parents must face head on before gaining access to uncovering the unlimited possibilities available to their child. Parents can increase their vision by being curious and by developing an appetite for learning about their children’s inner world.

The very act of asking your child a question about their favorite foods, toys, things to do, people or colors, and listening without criticism for the answers will release a sense of value that deepens the discovery.  This type of curiosity will generate excitement and energy with your child.

Children love to be explored passionately by their parents.  This is a way children can feel safe and secure during the process.  Without a question of curiosity, children easily lose interest and deny access to their inner world.

Do you care enough to ask your child questions that explore their dreams and capabilities?  What possibilities do you believe are awaiting your child within the next twelve months?  What would you like to have happen at the end of this week for your child? How much time will are you willing to invest toward the discovery of your child’s potential?  Removing the limitations you already place on your child will be a good place to start!

SLOTHFUL FATHERS

There is a real danger threatening our children today and that is slothful fathers. Slothful fathers are void of understanding about the value they must provide to their family consistently without excuses.  This epidemic cost taxpayers over $100 billion dollars annually and need to stop NOW!

Negligent, ungrateful, carelessness, procrastination and unwilling to work, perfectly describes the attitude these fathers use as weapons to destroy their own family from the inside.  Slothful fathers must become aware of the danger connected to this unproductive and ineffective style of parenting.

Words such as “I’m too tired, too busy, there’s not enough time, this makes no sense, it’s not my responsibility’ are all self-defeating words slothful fathers use to describe their ineffectiveness and low performance about their capabilities.

Fathers who intentionally avoid work and struggle with simple day-to-day family responsibilities are lazy and send the wrong message about parenting to their children.  It’s not alright for dads to be couch potato’s while expecting their children to demonstrate excellence at school or at home.  Children deserve better!

Earnest and persistent application to the family’s vision, mission and values is the key to removing slothfulness in the home.  Father’s captivated by the value the family adds to each other and the community are the highest motivating factors why most children excel at a level that surpasses their goals.

Focused attention on goals, expectations and the actions necessary for breaking free from slothfulness is a starting point many fathers will need to administer immediately, before leading their family toward a safe and productive future.

Identifying and recognizing those internal factors that distorts the perception of what it means to leave a family legacy, or the magnitude of a father’s role in the family must be addressed.  Families need responsible, productive and resourceful fathers more now than ever.  Are you willingly to face yourself and invest time to become a productive father?  What tools will you need to get started?  When will you start the process?

CHARITY ESSENTIALS

Life without charity is useless and unfulfilled.  Charity is essential for experiencing a life filled with increase, overflow, abundance, good measured, pressed down, shaken together and running over.  Charity is the key to long-term financial success and must begin first in your home.

9 Charity Essentials to Practice First at Home:

1. Patience: Passively apply patience with yourself in the financial planning process with each family member.  Use patience to create and operate your family budget.  Do not be in a hurry when making financial decisions.  Be calm, take your time and follow through with a realistic and peaceful action plan.  Believe for the best and hope for more stable financial resources and provisions that can position your family to financially support your community joyfully.

2. Kindness: Use kindness to move your family to another financial level of success.  Kindness is a financial weapon in action.  Never act rashly or insolently  toward money.  Using presumptuous and disrespectful behaviors to clarify the family’s financial situation to your children is inconsistent with charity.  Take time to discuss in an orderly manner your children’s budget, spending and investment goals at your weekly family meetings.  This level of kindness is mandatory for preparing your children to mirror back to the community excellent money management skills.

3. Generosity: Liberally investing and habitually maximizing your children’s financial portfolio before they graduate high school is an excellent form of demonstrating charity at home. Preparing your children to be financially responsible and accountability is an important and valuable aspect of family empowerment.  The level of generosity displayed in the home will match the level of generosity your family is capable of giving to others outside the home.

4. Humility: Conditioning your family to become skilled in humility is exhibiting charity without the parade.  Though often neglected, humility is foundational in positioning your family to lead successfully in the area of finance.  Pride destroys families unwilling to identify the many opportunities for activating humility. Unlimited wealth is attracted to humility.

5. Courtesy: Being polite in communicating the family’s 90 day spending plan without disagreement in spite of your family’s current economic situation is expressing charity in a manner your children can easily understand.

6. Unselfishness: The true essence of charity is unselfishness.  Having the courage to control the habit of overspending so as to secure your family’s financial future is experiencing charity without limits.  The secret to changing your family’s financial situation for the better is hidden in unselfishness.   The fear of not having enough is a trap many families never recover from.  There are more than enough financial resources available on this planet for every family.  Take a stand today and demonstrate your bravery facing every selfish thought and idea with the capability of sabotaging your children’s inheritance.

7. Good Temper: A well-balanced and mental dispositioned family has the potential to shift financial consciousness in their community, the school their children attend, and even the place they worship.  Families with good temperament are quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger.  The world cannot advance successfully without these families sharing this level of charity within the community.  The only way to stop hostility, hate and the poison generated by toxic emotions is to begin demonstrating good temperament in your home.  Once mastered visually in the home, children will begin to reflect back to the community a level of peace beyond human understanding.

8. Ethics: Being in accordance with financial principles that governs your family’s conduct is a form of charity that must be cultivated.  Children are watching their parents for the correct response to spending, saving and investing.  What financial morals do you practice at home before shopping?  Can your children trust you to manage their financial destiny?  When will you begin that education fund?

9. Sincerity: The truth in word and action is the meaning of sincerity to children.  Practice connecting a physical action to the financial promises you make to your children.  Words without the correct action sends a negative message to children.  Children who are disappointed usually reflect the same behavior to their classmates and eventually grow up to become adults that do the same to their spouse.  What can you do today to shift this dynamics in your home?  When will you begin teaching your family the essentials for adding value to their community?  What ideas do you have for preparing your children with an accountability plan for the cash you give them weekly for lunch, toys, entertainment or food?

DIGITAL TEENS

Digital photos, digital computers, digital books and now digital teens.  A new generation of teenagers are now being digitized and prep for digital fluency not relationships.  Parents not prepared to move strategically with their teens using this technology proactively will suffer the most.

Using touchnology and magnetic censors to communicate to their friends about the latest styles, games and social news are just some of the tools being used by most teenagers skillfully without parent interference or censorship.

Increasingly, parents are becoming aware of the disconnection with their teens.  However; most parents are at a disadvantage and refuse to get the knowledge, understanding and wisdom about how embracing this technology can improve and save the relationship with their teenager.

A parenting shift must take place immediately before it’s too late.  Mobile phones with a connection to social networking is no longer for adults, teens are fully engaged using social network at a whole new level.  Teen access to chat rooms and porn introduction are now easily available through advertisements.  Marketing gurus using targeted campaign ads to capitalize on the vulnerability of teenagers is the fastest way and most successful idea for reaching teens (the prey).

This is a wake up call for parents refusing to create a stable home environment that motivates and inspires their teenagers outside of this digitized age.  Parenting teens is now at a crisis stage due to technology ignorance practiced by many parents.

Parents must get involve and become educated in how media and technology affect their teen’s growth and development.  There is a dark side to this technology and being ignorant to its devices is not the proper response for helping your teenager.

What do you understand about internet safety? How can you help your teen avoid cyber bullying? Is you teen addicted to texting? What tactics are you using to protect your teen from self-destruction?  How can you tell if your computer or phones are being hacked?  Internet predators are waiting to capitalize on this level of ignorance.

According to statistics, teens are exposed to over 49 hours of media consumption per week for entertainment purposes only.  This does not count media consumption during school time.  This high level of exposure and enslavement to media stimulation is unhealthy and strategically designed to steal your teenagers mind.

Parents must become proactive now.  By the time you are done reading this article, your teen could be one of many, using this technology as a gateway drug to provide a state of ecstasy that chemically alter their brain, leaving them desperate for more digital stimulation.  Set a higher standard for your family by refusing to be a victim to this digital age.  Take action NOW!
