Blessing Your Children

By Dr Bill Maier
It’s the little things that make children feel special. Things that take almost no time and effort but add up to great memories for their future.

Give thanks for every member of the family, for each child by name. Say something like, “Thank you Jinghui, for the way you light up a room when you walk in. We’re so blessed to have such a bright and joyful child.”

Speak blessings into your children’s lives through your words and see how it affects their self-worth.

The next time you take a trip in the car or walk to the MRT station, ask each child to share their favourite things about their brothers or sisters. Take turns talking about what makes each child unique and special.

You’ll be doing more than building your children’s self-image; you’ll be teaching your children how to love and appreciate each other.

It isn’t difficult to make children feel special. It just takes a little extra creativity.
