Create the family you want to have

Monday is Parent Affirmation Day at Help 4 Your Family! 6/18/2012- delight

Written by, Kate Oliver, MSW, LCSW-C

After last’s week’s posts, you have to know what this weeks affirmation is going to be about.  Delight, of course!  Now that you know how important delight is, let’s go about making the process of delighting in our children of all ages a habit.

Delight is not only for the young.  Even if your child is one that rolls her eyes at you when you say something nice, don’t worry, she is listening, keep delighting anyway!  Remember the last time someone pointed out something you did really well and seemed genuinely excited for you?  How did it feel?  I hope it was not too long ago that you experienced this, since it is important for us all to be delighted in.

As a mom or dad, sometimes you are not the only one delighting, sometimes your children are delighting in you as well.  My friend Jennifer Webb, over at Mom’s Soul Cafe, just wrote a post about her daughter delighting in something about her.  You can read about it here.

This weeks affirmation is:

My children and I delight in each other, and in ourselves.

Enjoy this one and please take a moment to report back what your experiences are with this affirmation.

  1. Thank you for this. I am starting a summer program today for inner city children and their parents. I will definitely pass this affirmation along and credit you of course! Hopefully this will help touch at least 20 families today and spread from there 🙂

    • Don’t we all? One person pointing out something positive to me can get me in such a good, lasting groove. The same thing goes for me when I say something kind to someone else :). There is a great book about this- I included it on my amazon list. Have you filled a bucket today? Is the title.
