LETS GET INTO IT
I often wonder what runs through the minds of the new generation of children today? Have we taken the time out of our busy schedule as parents to listen to them? Its time to slide your parent seat back and get comfortable enough to listen to what your children are trying to tell you. You are not present in your child’s life twenty four hours. often times children face childhood trauma which result in fear and insecurities. We tend to make time for everything else.
I pray for my children daily . It seems like every time I pray for them, it seems as if it gets worse. I never intend to give up on them.
LETS BE REAL
Realistically, parents and children are inseparable when we are doing everything the child wants . But things change when discipline takes place. Some of the disagreements turn for the worse and some times both the parent and the child need a break from each other. Some responses that transfers between the two, are misunderstood because neither person want to listen.
FROM A MOTHER’S PERSPECTIVE
The most hurtful, gut-wrenching, heartbreaking thing to hear is your child tell you how you gave them the “death- ear” when they were crying out for help. The only way to heal is to heal internally which is where all the pain lies. This warfare that is amongst us is here to distract and detour our children.
Not all children get a listening ear. Very few live in a two parent household. Being a child is hard because they are unable to make some decisions. Where do a child go when there isn’t anyone available to listen? Most children struggle because that is what they are around. Children hurt from mother wounds and father wounds. These are the thoughts that ponder the minds of our youth. So the Question to us as parents is are we ready to LISTEN?
OUT OF THE MOUTH OF BABES
Children know their worth. There are strongholds that they are holding on to. Those strongholds are not always physical. Sometimes they come in mental and psychological form. They hold on to so much and they fear change. The biggest communication problem is we DO NOT listen to understand. We listen to Reply. Dreams shatter daily. Sometimes the only way to reach them and give them peace is if they had someone to JUST LISTEN! We are born with two ears and one mouth on purpose!
SILENT AND LISTEN USE THE SAME LETTERS. THINK ABOUT IT!
