The busy lifestyle can be brutal for parents, especially with children who are becoming independent.  This course has great practical help for parents of children age 11 and up.

If you’re parenting with a partner, ask them to watch or listen to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.

This course is also great in groups – start by checking it out alone, but then invite someone else or a couple to join  you.  When you’ve been meeting in a group for a little while, register your group here.

Day 13 - Love Language - Affirming Words

Speaking affirming words is one of the five love languages.

• the words we speak to our teenagers can stay with them for the rest of their lives • tell them of your love and pride in them affirm them (not just when they please you; not just for their achievements) • affirm their looks • aim at five positive comments for every one negative comment • find things for which to praise them • loving words build confidence and affect their attitudes • loving words can be spoken and written

Question:
Which of the five expressions of love do you find hardest to show to your children?

      Hi Ryan,
      Unfortunately, I’ve missed a few days. However, now I’m back.
      Mind you, I am now being technically challenged.
      I’m in Parenting Teens and can not get any clip up except for the first one. I want the sixth one.
      I’ve tried clicking on various different ones with no luck.
      Please help.
      Clare

        Glad to have you back on track! The clips are working, so perhaps you ran into a temporary glitch. Do try again and let me know what happens.
