Listen to your little ones…

Here is a little poem that deals with how we deal with our children.  It goes as follows:

Take a Moment to Listen

Take a moment to listen today

To what your children are trying to say;

Listen today, whatever you do

Or they won’t be there to listen to you.

Listen to their problems, listen for their needs,

Praise their smallest triumphs, praise their smallest deeds;

Tolerate their chatter, amplify their laughter,

Find out what’s the matter, find out what they’re after.

But tell them that you love them, every single night

And though you scold them, be sure you hold them tight:

Tell them “Everything’s all right;

Tomorrow’s looking bright!”

Take a moment to listen today

To what your children are trying to say;

Listen today, whatever you do

And they will come back to listen to you.

Psalm 34:11

11 Come, my children, listen to me;
    I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

Listen to your little ones…
