    – If toddlers refuse to eat, leave them alone. When they are hungry enough they will eat.

    – There many things in life a warm hug, loving pep talk and good cup of tea will cure.

    – Teenagers are always hungry – always

    – Smelly socks, filthy clothes and untidy rooms mean a house full of healthy, active kids.

    – Teach them to say please and thank you when they are very young.

    – Thank you notes when you receive a gift or someones time are a must. It teaches an expression of gratitude

    – Don’t compare kids ability and weaknesses. They all have their strengths.

    – Be kind, the world is so harsh, home should be a place of comfort, unconditional love and acceptance.

    – Laugh at all the stupid stuff.

    – Spend time with the kids, it all goes too fast

    – Its okay to cater to a fussy eater

    – Try to teach them some life skills – sewing a button, cooking, ironing, changing a tire. You never know when they will need it.

    – Imagine a world without you, teach them what they need to know to survive it.

    – Surround them with books.

    – Teach them to love God, to pray, to call on him when the feel lost,stressed, or when they need to be joyful.

    – Plant a tree with them

    – Pet a goat, or a chicken, or a dog, or a cat.

    – Teach them to protect the planet

    – Have traditions, celebrate them

    – Fuss over birthdays

    – Teach them its ok to fail, but learn from it

    – Teach them tolerance, understanding, respect of others differences

    – Tell them they can talk to you about their problems

    – Finally enjoy the process, and continue to learn every day
