5 GIFTS YOU MUST GIVE YOUR KIDS....


1. THE GIFT OF A GOOD MARRIAGE: We wish as parents we’d realize that a vital marriage between you and your spouse is the best gift you could ever give your kids. It’s better than anything you can purchase at the store. When you model a healthy marriage, they learn how to do marriage themselves. 
2. THE GIFT OF TIME: Don't believe the lie that quality is more important than quantity time. The only way to give quality time is to invest quantity time in your children’s lives.
3. THE GIFT OF DISCIPLINE: Discipline is a debt that we owe our children. I thought it was interesting that a recent survey showed that eighty-seven percent of college students said their parents weren’t strict enough on them. Make rules and set boundaries and stick to them. You are to be their parent, more than their buddy. 
4. THE GIFT OF SPIRITUAL TRAINING: We wish as parents we’d see that spiritual training is not optional but essential. Families today don’t need a small dose of God, they need a large dose of God. Children need spiritual training.
5. THE GIFT OF INTEGRITY: We wish as parents we’d practice what we preach. I wish we wouldn’t tell our children one thing and then do just the opposite. That has to be so confusing to our children. Practice what you preach and model values and integrity!
Do you agree or disagree with these?

  7. This list definitely covers the most important elements of being a good parent. I might also add the gift of kindness. It's so easy for people today to forget to be good to each other and that gets pasted down to our children.

  8. Totally agree. Most of these come down to being a good role model. Kids tend to imitate us for better or worse!

  12. Beautifully said. It's good to show them these things. Everything starts at home after all, a large part of their views and attitude comes from us, their parents. And teaching them these would do them a lot of good in the long run and teach them to be better human beings.
