I Love MyChild to DEATH OR I Love My Child to LIFE?

 
I Love My Child to DEATH   OR   I Love My Child to LIFE?
 
If discipline is teaching plus consequences and punishment is consequence only, how are parents to truly express love toward their children?  Is love simply a reaction given from the parents for children to experience continuous, un-denied, present gratification, or is it a discipline for harvesting lifelong, fruitful benefits?    When children engage in environments different from their primary home  environment, they may tend to desire or agree with opposing values, fearing the guilt of not fitting in and give a quiet ear to those who present themselves as family friends, with an underscore of deception.  Every day, adults tell children and adolescent,“to be confident and make firm positive decisions; stand up for what you know is right.... and so forth.”   But, as adults grow older, they realize that peer pressure grows through life along with them.   I ask again, are parents loving their children to LIFE or loving them to DEATH?   WANTS  -vs. – NEEDS continues to be  a lifelong challenge.   What is it that makes a parent weak in their knees to say “No” or “Later” to their children?  Somehow, in today’s society, there is an irony between the in ability to restrain and the patience to persevere.  What strong parenting issue have you had to stand firm,  in opposition to those you love, for the betterment of your child? Or better yet, what gave you the strength to endure?  The consequences and benefits  of Wants  vs. Needs in the lives of children – is further discussed in the book,  School Readiness for Parents & Children, K-12 The book,  “UnResolved, The Blessing of A ReSolved Lifestyle”  addresses  unresolved adult childhood self-esteem issues   that could overlap into future parenting styles.     www.resolved-2010.com

FROM THE CLASSROOM TO INDUSTRY

 
 
As we continue to guide students into a successful future,we are reminded of the importance of personal skills as shared by John Rosemond.  Rosemond wrote “Four hundred respondents were asked to rate their big-gest disappointment when it came to filling jobs. The big-gest problem was hires who lack the ability/willingness to follow directions. The biggest disappointments were punctuality, positive attitude, ambition, and honesty. The survey draws no conclusion, but I’ll offer one: It would appear that today’s parents would do well to focus less on getting their children into gifted and talented programs and focus more on teaching them manners, respect for others, responsibility and other basic character values. As my wife and I often told our children as they were growing up, there are more than a few geniuses in this world who are failures. But, there are very few people who respect other people and their property and have proper social skills who fail, regardless of IQ.” www.rosemond.com/parenting.
