10 Fun Ways to Connect With Your Child
Finding fun and easy ways of connecting with your child/ren makes for a peaceful day for all. Following are 10 fun ways of connecting with your kids. If you have other ideas, please feel free to share. I’d love to hear what works for you and your family.
1. Serve the food you give to them in a
fun and creative way.
Make a face with the fruit they are having for breakfast or a snack. Or cut their sandwich in the shape of a star.
One of the best ways for a child to learn is by engaging in hands-on activities. So incorporating them into the teaching of VALUES is an excellent way to reinforce the message you are sending. This is true for the child you are working with whether it is your child or grandchild or if you are in a classroom situation. Since, as I have said before EACH person who interacts with a child can be instrumental in their life, you want to take advantage of every available technique to help him or her learn to lead a peaceful life.

RE: www.TheParenting Passageway.com
A passageway, as one would guess, is a conduit to the next thing: a way to allow movement from one place, condition or stage to the next. This blog is entitled “The Parenting Passageway” as it is intended to help support and encourage parents in peaceful parenting for our hectic world. Thank you for reading and many blessings to you.
Whenever you are attempting to help your children to align with the values you hold as a family, there will be special times when a value lesson can be taught from what is going on in the moment.
I’ve discovered through my years of parenting, teaching and consulting, that if you make a BIG DEAL about one or two situations, as they occur there is a huge impact in ALL behavior in the following days, months and even years. Sometimes, it may take many many“Teaching Moments”experiences to make an impact on a child, especially if they have very deficient behavior, which has been going on for some time.
How to Teach Children to Align with Family Values
Now that you’ve chosen your family VALUES, and have started putting them into place, no doubt things have shifted somewhat. Perhaps your positive reinforcement as discussed in yesterday’s Blog (Day 6) is working. When your child does something in alignment with your VALUES and you “Catch Them Doing It Right” you acknowledge their performance. In this way you have supported their good behavior and even more positive results have followed.
In yesterday's blog,Choosing Your Family Values for Raising Peaceful Children,I started a discussion about the use of family VALUES in generating peace within a family. Today, this will be Part II of that discussion.
The discussion was centered around the following list of over 21 such VALUES to be considered as candidates for the “core values” you want to focus on in your family. In addition you may come up with others. I invite you to read through the list a couple of times to get a feel for range presented here.
This Blog is all about Having Courage to Parent – Independent of Common Practices and…
…Independent of what the “neighbors” are doing!
…. Independent of what your children’s friends are doing!
…. Independent of your children’s begging and begging!
In today’s fast-paced world, you are asked to make many many decisions through-out the day. Often this can be over-whelming, especially when your children end up begging for something just at the moment when your mind is trying to figure out what to do about the five other things that have to be taken care of.
About 10 years ago I met a man who had been inspired to
create numerous products all centered around PEACE. At that time, while his business was somewhat successful, it was not
thriving. He felt that perhaps the time was past for his products. I wonder if he is
still in the business today? I hope so! The more people and businesses out there
promoting PEACE, the greater the focus will be...and the greater amount of GOOD that will
For me, I think this is the most important work we can do in the world -
