How to Really Love A Child

When Hubby and I decided to have children of our own, we knew the responsibility - and the liability to some extent - that goes with our decision is beyond measure. Conceiving was easy ;) But raising them up is the real score.

Someone from an e-group I am a member of shared a wonderful find in the internet on how to be a parent. I love it. It's so beautiful. I'm sharing it and posting it here to remind me every now and then on how to really love a child.

How To Really Love A Child

Be there
Say yes as often as possible.
Let them bang on pots and pans.
If they’re crabby, put them in water.
If they’re unlovable, love yourself.
Realize how important it is to be a child.
Go to a movie theater in your pajamas.
Read books out loud with joy.
Invent pleasures together.
Remember how really small they are.
Giggle a lot.
Surprise them.
Say no when necessary.
Teach feelings.
Heal your own inner child.
Learn about parenting.
Hug trees together.
Make loving safe.
Bake a cake and eat it with no hands.
Go find elephants and kiss them.
Plan to build a rocket ship.
Imagine yourself magic.
Make lots of forts with blankets.
Let your angel fly.
Reveal your own dreams.
Search out the positive.
Keep the gleam in your eye.
Encourage silly.
Plant licorice in your garden.
Open up.
Stop yelling.
Express your love.
A lot.
Speak kindly.
Paint their tennis shoes.
Handle with caring

Children are Miraculous
