LISTENING 2 CHILDREN OF ALL AGES!
I’ve been writing the blog now for 16 days. Each day I want the content to be note-worthy, important to the reader! Daily I ponder “What should the focus be for my next blog”? Sometimes, the topic is obvious! Sometimes, it’s not! Ideas come and go! I continue my thought process. Daily, I want something NEW, something DIFFERENT, something to catch everyone’s attention. For Day 17 several subject entered my mind but no decision was made!
The reason I am blogging each day during July is because Lesa Townsend (www.conversation2sales.com) presented a 31 Day Challenge and invited folks to blog daily for 31 days. She sends a wonderful newsletter daily, with tips for Bloggers. I’ve found it very helpful, and yet I have much to learn about the social media side of writing a blog.
Two years ago I started my blog, but had not done much with it. So, I felt this 31 day challenge was a great opportunity. I must say that last week I found the word “challenge” very appropriate.
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.
Focusing on “What is Right” Part II
Yesterday the title of my blog was Focusing on “What is Right!” and I shared with you the work of Kurt Wright, who spent more than 20 years working with top business leaders and their organizations, to support them in "getting on a roll" and to understand what each of us is like when we are at our best. In his work he encourages individuals to focus on "what is right".
As part of his program he invites people to answer five questions, which I shared in the blog yesterday (and are below).
Focusing on “What is Right”!
Some years ago, I met a gentlemen who had initiated a program for Abundance and it was based on looking at “what is already right”, not focusing on the problem, or what is wrong. I was very curious about his approach and asked him more about it. He referred me to Kurt Wright’s work, and the book Breaking the Rules.
Kurt Wright, founder and President of Clear Purpose Management, Inc., has spent more than 20 years working with top business leaders and their organizations, all around the world, to support them in getting on a roll.
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.
Raising Peaceful Children ARTICLE by Carrie Dendtler from www.TheParentingPassageway.com /Posted on August 17, 2009
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.
