"Take some time to tell your child you like them today, and list the reasons why. Then watch in wonder as they blossom before your eyes. Words of recognition and appreciation to a child are like sunshine and rain to a flower."
"Respect is a learned behavior just like any other, and children learn it best by imitation just like they do with other behaviors. Teach them respect by showing them respect and by showing respect to others in front of them." L.R.Knost www.littleheartsbooks.com
