I spend a fair amount of words in these newsletters giving suggestions for correcting difficult behaviors. It has been a while however, since I’ve reminded you of how important relationship building is. I think men especially can get so wrapped up on completing tasks, that we forget to just spend time with those we care for –which is the required building block for relationships.
We forget often at Crossroads to value relationship while we are working but the reality is that we have no behavior correction without relationship.
Remember to take your son or daughter out on a ‘date’ occasionally and do not bring up behavior. Give no advice. Just enjoy them as a person. This will pay dividends for the next time that you are required to parent!
