numbers of youth involved today Well lets fact it every now and then the suffers from oversimplification the use of it that is And I want you to know I argued with her What about having only one parent But before I could get any more what abouts out she said What about Abraham Lincoln 1 had a funny feeling shed pull that one on me Then you asked questions It didnt help me feel any better about the generic nebulous solution to young peoples ills when I received letters and phone calls from you asking in the cliched nutshell How specifically how do I make my children know that they

sports activities recreation whos had time for introspection Whos had time for quiet loving talks In other words cut yourself some slack you may be doing the best you can Some specifics At the risk of having you discover that this is no expert talking to you Ill spell out some points for your consideration 1 If your introspection tells you that you dont love your child get help 1 in trying to understand why and 2 in building that love Recognize that love the child or not the Universe has paid you the awesome compliment of entrusting a human life to your care 2 Set standards of behavior and moral values being certain they are free of judgmentalism and religious bigotry then make certain these standards are carefully explained to your child 3 Make certain your child knows that there are always consequences to our actions loving or fearful and though we may not be able to connect them to our deeds there is always a ripple effect that is positive or hurtful 4 Dont run around ragged giving your child the world gymnastics dance lessons and then be grumpy about it No joy in the giving means no joy received s 5 Without overburdening them make your children know how much help is needed and appreciated how much difference they make in your lite 6 Play with them Laugh have pillow fights do silly things teach them how to give simple happy surprises by doing that yourself 7 Above all really listen to them Hear their concerns as well as their to be expected selfcenteredness Quiet the wheels in your own mind so that instead of being prepared to shoot down their reasoning you
