CHILDREN ARE GOD'S GIFT

If you are a parent, read this. Better yet, keep it where you can read it regularly.

1) My hands are small, don’t expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture, or throw a ball. My legs are short, slow down so that I can keep up with you.

2) My eyes have not seen the world as yours have; let me explore it safely; don’t restrict me unnecessarily.

3) Make time for me, housework will always be there; I am only little once.

4) I have feelings too; don’t nag me about my inquisitiveness. Treat me as you would like to be treated.

5) I am a gift, treasure me as God intended. Hold me accountable, give me guidelines to live by, discipline me with love.

6) I need encouragement to grow, not empty praise. Go easy, you can correct the things I do without putting me down.

7) Give me the freedom to make decisions, even if they are not always right. Permit me to fall, so I can learn to walk.

8) Don’t do things repeatedly for me; that makes me feel like my efforts do not measure up to your expectations. Please do not compare me with others; I am me, not them.

9) Don’t be afraid to leave me with grandparents so that you can have a weekend together. Kids need some times away from parents, just as parents need some time away from children. Besides it shows us that your marriage is something very special.

10) Take me to Gods house and introduce me to Him, because I will need Him for the rest of my life

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward." PSALM 127:3
