Connection Before Direction

In Gordon Neufeld’s “Hang On To Your Kids” best seller it basically sums up what I always felt inside. If we want our kids to go on a positive path, let’s make sure we make the connection as strong as can be before molding them. This will prevent that nagging syndrome. It doesn’t mean it’s always easy, or foolproof. But short term strict parenting approaches often backfire with the kids eventually not wanting to be around. This requires a lot of deep breaths because it doesn’t come easy but pays off big in the end.

Instead of reacting from the gut, respond from the soul.
