The second is to let your child hear him or her being praised by you. I am not saying act out a scene, but do not be overly cautious about commending your child to another person in that child’s hearing. It is like water to a thirsty man’s soul. Whether they tell you or not, our children need us to love and accept them as the unique, deliberately crafted creatures sent from heaven to bless our lives and homes. Let us celebrate them.
