I can’t believe it! We made it through 31 days of non-stop posts about connecting with your child. I wanted to use this last post to thank you all for hanging with me and see how you did.
Did you try any of the ideas? Have you been praying for your children? Have you noticed a difference?
Sometimes it takes stopping and considering the purpose of something to really do it well. Connecting with your child on a deeper level is vital to their success. God uses that intentional connection to show them who He is and how much He loves them. You are just the vessel. He is the real connection we want to encourage.
Every day, in some way, make a deep, purposeful, lasting connection with your child. If you have never done it before, your child may take time to respond. That’s OK. We don’t do the right thing for the results, we do it because it’s the right thing. Then we give the rest to God and He will take care of it.
I was chatting with a friend about how sometimes one child is so much like us that we can struggle with communication. I have a couple of kids that are more private and less sharing. It’s these kids that I need to pay extra attention to making sure I am setting my own needs aside and being purposeful about making that connection with every day.
Making a purposeful connection, building trust, showing vulnerability and caring will build a relationship with your child that will last through the hard years.
If you have any questions, or want to dig deeper be sure to attend my free webinar on Monday, November 5 at 7:00PM Central. We’ll be talking about this, doing some fun giveaways and discussing how to follow up. I can’t wait to “see” you there!
