The foundation of a house is the most important part of the house. A child’s first 7 to 10 years are the most important part of their lives. This is when the foundation and framework for their future is being created. One of my favorite sayings about children is “Children are like cement anything that touches them makes an impression. (good or bad)
Children are like cement anything that touches them makes an impression.
Parents please realize the importance of these years. Look at it like this. Let’s pretend for a moment your child is like a bank. You make deposits by spending time with them, give them hugs and kisses, disciplining them when necessary, If you say you are going to do something, do it! These are all major deposits. Well fast forward a few years, you will be able to make withdrawals by having a kid who listens, hugs you in return and tells you they love you, and most of all respects you. You can’t get out what you don’t put in. How can you expect a big withdrawal if you never make a deposit into your child’s life?
