Please value your child’s individuality
Please give your child love, acceptance, support and affection
Please don’t try to make your child into what you want him/her to be
Please protect your child from physical and emotional harm from anyone, even family
Please help your child feel safe
Please support your child’s emotions
Please help your child feel worthy
Doing these things will save your child from a lifetime of dysfunctional relationships and situations
And will give you a loving relationship with your child, rather than a horrible ending
Your child needs to know you value and love him or her
All of your actions are teaching them how to feel about him or herself
If we are not accepting, loving, valuing and supporting them they will not do this for themselves and will choose people that do not value or love them, leading to a very broken life
If our children are grown and we’ve made mistakes (we are human and we ALL make mistakes), it’s never too late to begin treating them with love and respect to begin a healing process.
From a 54-year-old that now realizes why she chose all the wrong people and situations that led to a life full of dysfunction but now recovering and healing towards a better life. Her parents did not know any better and she does not blame them. She only puts this information out in an effort to help as many people as possible live a happy life with healthy relationships.
